I like carrot cake, so when I saw this recipe for carrot cake cookies on the excellent delish.com website, I couldn’t resist it. Now, whether I can actually successfully make the cookies is another question entirely . . . .
Carrot Cake Cookies
Ingredients: 1 cup softened butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon; 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 cup shredded carrots, 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, 1/2 cup raisins, 2 cups old-fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, until incorporated, then add vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture until well-combined. Stir in carrots, coconut, raisins, and oats and mix until just combined. Scoop 1-inch rounds of dough onto baking sheet. Bake until golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool.
