Rhubarb Cookies


This recipe is a recipe in progress. Why am I posting an unperfected recipe? I am posting it because I am totally stumped with what to do with it. Does it need frosting? A glaze? More rhubarb? Cinnamon? I just don’t know. My friends say they are just fine, quit fussing. I say they are okay the way they are but they are missing the one thing to take them from okay to great. So if you try the recipe please let me know what you think. Are the cookies perfect just the way they are or what do you think they need?

Rhubarb Cookies

1/4  cup butter, softened
6 TBS brown sugar
3  TBS lightly beaten egg
3/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
6 TBS diced rhubarb
3 TBS flaked coconut, optional

In a medium mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Beat in the egg. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture.  Stir in the rhubarb and coconut, if using, and mix well.  Drop by tablespoonfuls two inches apart on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake 12-15  minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
