I can picture it perfectly: A table of imaginary friends dressed in pastel and petticoats, with veiled hats pinned to perfectly styled hair, and all sipping perfectly brewed tea from thin china cups. Because they are extremely polite, but also because it is true, my guests would comment that the cookies are simply charming! Their imperfect shapes give them a quaint appeal.
Having tried the cookies everyone would switch to commenting on their marvelously complex flavor. “Isn’t it wonderful the way the tang of fresh rhubarb tickles your tongue?” “I would never have expected ginger and all spice in a summery oatmeal cookie!” “It that lemon? It is the perfect thing to lighten these bold flavors.”
Of course, there would be one sour grape amongst them to pooh-pooh the rustic bits of rhubarb and whole rolled oats. “Utterly gauche!” (Little girl fantasies are such high drama!) Miss high-and-mighty would be responded to politely but, generally ignored by the others around the painted iron table – obviously there is an iron table, it is a garden tea party.
Yes, this is certainly how my little girl fantasy tea parties would have played out. I am sure my mother would have encouraged this type of imaginary thinking. I am also sure she would have been more than happy to supply my garden tea party with fresh rhubarb oatmeal cookies. Cookies and a box of lacy dress up clothes. Mom would also strongly encourage any use of the word, “gauche,” during creative play.
Rhubarb recipes often pour on the sugar overwhelming its natural flavors. In this recipe fresh ginger and lemon zest add a bright flavor without overpowering the rhubarb’s signature tang. These soft rhubarb oatmeal cookies are perfect with a cup of tea in the afternoon. They would make a lightly sweet addition to an afternoon shower or garden party menu.
