I made a review earlier, but I want to add to it. To help it be moist, make sure you really cream the butter and sugar together—really best well. Then really beat each egg in before adding the next. I don’t care for the coconut so I generally add 1/2 c walnuts instead. Really good recipe.
Been making these for a number of years and have not found one person who didn't like them. I was reluctant to try the recipe but I am glad I did give it a try as it's a winner . Have been asked for the recipe numerous times.
Not a huge fan of rhubarb but I have a batch that I feel I must do something with. Don't care for rhubarb pies so I thought I would try a cookie. Figured I could "gift" them to my neighbor if needed. I just hate these cookies - I am trying to lose weight and if I don't get rid of some of them soon, I am going to eat ALL of them! Soooo Good. Tasted them without the frosting and they were very good, with the frosting - Killer Cookies. Fantastic - I may need to plant more rhubarb
I have to admit, I was pretty skeptical on the concept of a rhubarb cookie. I lean towards a crunchy or chewy cookie. However, the little chunks of rhubarb in these cake-like delights with a generous swirl of the frosting were to DIE FOR! Give these a chance. They'll surprise you!
I made these yesterday (i did read all the comments first). while i was mixing i thought it may be too much flour, but trusted the recipe and kept going. it was a bit thick to stir but i remembered that rhubarb gets really watery when cooked so i added nothing extra. They are SOOOO yummy and moist!! unfrosted! I will definitely make these again this summer
I made these cookies and they are so moist. But the one thing extra I did for a little more flavor was to sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar on top before I baked them. I did not frost them at all with the cinnamon sugar used instead.
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
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!
