To begin making Rhubarb Cookies I sliced some fresh rhubarb very thinly.

Then I dumped some brown sugar and Golden Flavour Crisco shortening into a large mixing bowl.

After creaming the sugar and shortening together with an electric hand mixer I added a large egg and some vanilla extract.

Then I used the electric hand mixer again to combine before adding the dry ingredients.

I measured in some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, rolled oats, ground cinnamon, salt and baking soda.

I started blending with the hand mixer and then switched to a wooden spoon to get all the dry ingredients incorporated before adding in some white chocolate chips and the thinly sliced rhubarb.

After folding in the chips and rhubarb I used a 1 tablespoon scoop to drop the cookie dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  I pressed the dough balls down slightly.

I baked the cookies in a preheated 350F oven for 12 – 14 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.

After removing the cookies from the oven I allowed them to cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes.

Then I transferred them to a rack to finish cooling.

Once cooled enjoy Rhubarb Cookies as a snack or dessert.

Rhubarb and white chocolate are a tasty combination for just the right amount of sweetness in each bite.

Enjoy every delicious mouthful of these soft Rhubarb Cookies.
