A reader has reported this dough recipe a bit sticky and heavy and mainly very "cakey." Though some people might prefer this form of a cookie, I would be inclined to cut the eggs called for to 2 to reduce that cakiness. Your choice.

Cookie Dough

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

4 eggs

pinch salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 cup soft butter

4 1/2 cups all purpose flour

Mix the butter and sugars, and slowly add the eggs. Continue with the dry ingredients.

Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheets with parchment paper or ungreased.

Make an indentation in each cookie, and spoon in a bit of the rhubarb mixture. Top the cookie with a little bit of dough. (very small - 1 tsp. will do)

Bake at 350F for 10 minutes or just until lightly golden.

This recipe makes approximately 5 dozen cookies.

TIP: Don't discard the rhubarb mixture if you have any left. It makes a wonderful jam or topping on a dessert.
