Followed the recipe exactly. I expected more from this well-rated recipe. I ended up with dry, tasteless "cookies". If I try this again, I would reduce the amount of flour first. The flavor of the fresh rhubarb and coconut was just not there. Threw the whole batch out.
These are VERY good. not great for a hot day though because the icing melts, difficult to pack and bring with you
Perfect. No frosting needed. Very moist.
Made these delicious cookies with a bit of hesitation - didn't know if they would turn out because I had never tried rhubarb, but they turned out great and tasted so yummy. I recommend cutting the rhubarb small to make more even cookies. Very good; everyone enjoyed these.
Rhubarb lovers will love these cookies! The rhubarb/coconut combo is terrific. I chose not to frost them, but instead left some plain and some lightly sprinkled with icing sugar. Addictive!
