Rhubarb Cookies

I dont know about you, but I really love Rhubarb. My summer months are filled with Rhubarb crumble making! But this year I have vowed to change my thinking, I want to challenge myself a bit more, think outside of the box. So today, I started small. I took a risk and experimented. I made Rhubarb cookies, and I am so pleased that I did. They are a bit rough round the edges BUT they are yummy!


Very easy to make and use very few ingredients, most of them store cupboard essentials.

Ingredients:


  • 100g softened butter
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 150g self raising flour
  • 75g porridge oats
  • 1 stick of Rhubarb (mine was just under 100g)
Method:

Cut your rhubarb into small chunks, I sliced mine into half centimeter rounds and then cut those into four. 

Cream together the butter and sugar, I used an electric whisk, but this is not essential. 

Add the egg and the flour and whisk/stir.

Next add the oats and the rhubarb and gently fold in. 

You should now have a very sticky mixture. 

Line 2 baking trays with baking paper and put small spoonfuls of the mixture onto the trays. Making sure you have a good spacing between each cookie, as they will spread. 


Place in a pre heated oven (180 degrees) for around 15 minutes until just starting to brown.

Leave to cool for a few minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

I managed to make 22 cookies from this mixture, but even that many didn't last long! 

They are so yummy and moorish, you really need to try them yourself to see how scrummy they really are! 

Do you like Rhubarb? Whats your favourite way to cook it? I would love to know.
