Rhubarb Cookies

Rhubarb makes a great addition to these soft pillowy cookies. They are similar to an oatmeal raisin cookie, but with the lovely sour flavor from the finely chopped rhubarb.

If you don’t have your own plant, you can typically find it at a local farmers’ market, or even in the frozen section at your grocery store. Watch me make these delicious cookies in the video below.
