Carrot Cookies

My girlfriend advised me that she has a plethora of carrots at the moment and asked me for some recipes. Variety in carrots sounds like the ticket to me...

  • 1 cup shortening

  • 3/4 cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup mashed cooked carrots

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease cookie sheets.

  2. Mix shortening, sugar, eggs, and carrots.

  3. Blend in flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in coconut.

  4. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto lightly greased baking sheet.
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until no imprint remains when touched lightly. Immediately remove baking sheet. Let cool.

  5. Use the orange frosting to finish these yummy cookies!
