    Sharlene~W's Note:

    We love these carrot cookies either plain or with butter cream frosting flavored with a little lemon zest and lemon juice, or try 1/2 recipe of Creamy Orange Frosting. These cookies have a nice cake-like texture--nice and soft. Note: Made these again today and thought I'd better add a comment. I made them about tablespoon sized and they cooked in 8 minutes. They don't need to brown on bottom--just cook until they are nice and firm.

      Very yummy! It was a very cakey texture cookie. Actually they seemed more like muffin tops to us--I was expecting that though so we really liked them. They had a mild sweet flavor. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because I added a good amount of cinnamon and a dash more of vanilla for more flavor. The last part of the dough I threw in some chocolate chips to mix it up--great addition! Thanks for the recipe!

      I've made these several times, and they're a hit every time! Although I confess that I've never had the icing work out for me - it's always way too thin and runny. :-(
