"This recipe cuts down in half nicely. These cookies are very moist and an excellent way to use up rhubarb out of the garden. I made these but changed them up quite a bit to make them a little more heart healthy. I used canola oil instead of butter and also used whole wheat pastry flour instead of AP flour. I also used raw sugar. For more details check out my blog"

"Did you try thawing rhubarb and then squeeze out water or let sit and drain?

That would be my thought of where the moisture is coming from.
hope this helps"
