      Wow! These were spectacular! No need for frosting, if you ask me. I did increase oven temp to 375 because of the use of shortening. The coconut has a great complement to the tartness of the rhubarb. I also let the cut rhubarb set in a couple of tablespoons of sugar while I mixed up the cookie dough to get the juices out. And, my secret little touch was a teaspoon of five spice. Delicious!

      I thought these were great! I just found this recipe yesterday and was immediately intrigued - I never heard of rhubarb cookies before. So I just had to make them, and my husband and I really loved them. I haven't had one cold yet, but warm out of the oven they were so wonderful. I did however add 1 tsp cinnamon to the flour mixture because I love cinnamon. I would add more rhubarb next time too, can never get enough of that. Thanks for the great recipe!!!

      I was a little nervous about these too, but they turned out great. The sweet frosting is a great contrast to the slightly tart rhubarb cookie, although I suppose you could make it without. I chopped the rhubarb pretty small, and would probably do it that way again.
