Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, place the sugar, water, and rhubarb. Cook, stirring frequently, until the rhubarb starts to soften, about 10 minutes or so.
  2. Add the strawberries and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes. You can serve this warm or refrigerate for up to a week.
  3. To make the cookies: Cream the butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the flour and continue stirring until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
  4. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Place the dough balls on a lined cookie sheet, approximately 2 inches apart. Use a flower-themed cookie press to stamp a flower on each cookie. Use the turbinado sugar for the center of the flower.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
  6. Place some vanilla ice cream in each serving dish, pour the rhubarb/strawberry mixture over the ice cream, and serve with a shortbread cookie.
