Rhubarb Raspberry Cookies - my new favorite way to enjoy the delicious RHUBARB! These cookies are amazing! The raspberries add a nice fruity sweetness that goes perfectly with the rhubarb.
We are experiencing spring in our yard for the first time and it has been exciting! It's like opening a present when you have absolutely no idea what is hiding inside. Suddenly a beautiful purple tree and strawberries pop out, along with singing birds and a giant patch of rhubarb. I was so thrilled to find rhubarb tucked back behind the raspberry bushes. I remember having rhubarb in our yard in Nebraska as a kid. My mom would give me a bowl of sugar and I'd sit alongside the leafy plants, dipping rhubarb into the sugar and eating as much as my stomach could handle. There is something extraordinary about super-tart combined with super-sweet.
These cookies are my new favorite way to enjoy rhubarb, minus the way I enjoyed it as a kid, of course. The raspberries and rhubarb make a great team. When I took my first bite, my eyes bugged out of my head and I was in a bit of disbelief about how delicious it was.
If a patch of rhubarb sits in your yard, please go pluck a few and make these cookies. Your life will be changed for the better.
