Carrots Anyone?

 On Wednesday evening my cold began to let up and I felt better enough to try out some new baking.I really wanted to make some cookies so I looked into a book called company's coming-cookies and I came across these neat carrot cookies.These are a simple drop cookie with the major taste factor being the carrots and dried fruits;however they can have anything added extra such as variety of dried fruits,chocolate chips,or nuts.

These cookies have a great light golden appearance along with in tensing color of orange.There texture is chewy and crunchy with a cake like interior.They have a delicious cinnamon spice and fruit like flavor.In my opinion they are a cookie that tastes like carrot cake,which is a favorite of mine so I was pleased and so was the people around me.This recipe makes about 3 dozen or less depending on what size you like them to be.I doubled the recipe to make more because I knew cookies go quickly around here. I was very pleased with how simple and delicious these cookies were.Plus a cookie recipe doesn't have to be difficult to bake elegant delicious cookies for yourself. So enjoy and try them out.

What I Did:
  • Doubled the recipe
