Rhubarb Cookie Recipe Homemade Make Rhubarb Cookies with Raisins and Pecans


Note - you can use fresh OR frozen rhubarb for this rhubarb recipe.

If you chose to use frozen rhubarb, be sure to thaw the frozen rhubarb in a sieve, over a bowl, and discard the excess liquid.

Also, you may need to thaw a little more frozen rhubarb to have 1 cup thawed rhubarb, as it tends to "shrink" when thawing.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. nutmeg, optional
1/2 cup shortening, softened
1 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 medium size egg
1/2 cup milk (lukewarm)
1 cup raisins
2/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 cup desiccated coconut (I used unsweetened coconut)
1 cup chopped fresh or * frozen rhubarb

Rhubarb Cookies  Amazing Rhubarb Cookie Recipe


In a medium size bowl, combine the flour, salt, cinnamon and the baking soda.

In another, larger bowl, mix together with a fork, the shortening and the brown sugar.

Mix in the egg.

Add in the dry ingredients (flour mixture), alternating with the milk.

Gradually add in the raisins, chopped nuts, coconut and the chopped rhubarb, and continue to mix (use a fork or a wooden spatula, or your hands!), until the batter is well combined.

Drop by spoonful on a parchment lined cookie baking tray (see picture).

The cookies do not need to be spaced too far apart on the cookie baking tray because they do not spread very much while baking in the oven.

Bake at 375° F in the center of the oven, for about 12 - 14 minutes or until the cookies begin to turn golden brown.

Yield: about 4 dozen sCrUmPtIoUs Rhubarb Raisin Cookies
