Rhubarb Lemon Cookies Recipe

Rhubarb Lemon Cookies Recipe
Rhubarb is at its best in the spring, and a nice way to use it is the following Lemon Rhubarb Cookies. They are soft with a light crumb, and the tart lemon and rhubarb make them taste like springtime. They aren’t overly sweet, which is a nice change from some of the popular cookies out there. These cookies are fairly quick and easy to make, and keep well for at least a week. They make a great snack with a glass of milk or with coffee or tea, or they can be served alongside pudding or ice cream.
