Strawberries and rhubarb cookies

Production: 20 –
Preparation: 30 Minutes
Cooking: 17 Minutes

Finally…. summer is back!

Let’s enjoy Mother Nature gifts and use some of those juicy, sun-kissed sweet strawberries. Blend them to another plant also generously provided by nature: the rhubarb. And get ready to produce a wonderful batch of Rustic Rhubarb and Strawberry cookies.

Note: Rhubarb produces slightly bitter taste so we have two tips to cut it down a bit:
1 – Before baking, once your dough balls are placed on the cookie sheet, sprinkle some white sugar on them.
2 – or when your cookies are baked and cooled sprinkle a little icing sugar on top

Again we advise you to make a double batch if the moment they left the oven you’re gonna get robbed and there you will no longer be enjoyed in the days ahead.

Bon appetit!
