Rhubarb Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

24 Apr

I love rhubarb, nothing quite says Summer like a strawberry/rhubarb pie.  I am on diet, more of a lifestyle change, so I am trying really hard to behave when it comes to food.  I saw this recipe and I just had to steal it from my mom.  I haven’t actually made it, due to the fact that if I have stuff like this laying around, I am going to be the one who eats most of it.  I am definitely saving it for one of those occasions when you have company coming over.

Rhubarb Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1 cup Criscorhubarb
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups diced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 3/4 cup flaked coconut

In a large mixing bowl, cream Crisco and brown sugar.  Beat in eggs.  Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.  Fold in rhubarb and coconut.  Drop by rounded tablespoons, 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets.  Bake at 350°F for 10-14 minutes, until golden brown.  Cool for 1 minute, and remove to wire racks to cool completely.  Frost.

Frosting

  • 1 (3-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tsp. vanilla

For frosting, in a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy.  Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla.  Spread over cookies.  Makes approximately 4 dozen.

Here is a recipe that I think sounds great.  I made a few changes to a recipe my mother gave me and it really ends up being a whole new recipe.

  • 2 c. buttermilk
  • 1 (12-oz.) pkg. Cool Whip
  • 1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding
  • 2 c. fresh raspberries
  • 1 c. miniature marshmallows
  • 15 Pepperidge Farms Original Milano cookies – chopped
  • Bar of dark chocolate shaved

Beat together buttermilk, Cool Whip and pudding.  Add raspberries and marshmallows.  Two hours before serving, add chopped cookies, reserving some to sprinkle on top.  Add shaved chocolate to garnish.

Dark chocolate and raspberries, mmm-mmm good!
