    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.

      These cookies were really tasty, however I didnt follow the original recipe to a tee. I made some changes to lighten them up a little, cut the sugar, and add flavor elsewhere:<br/><br/>-Sub half the butter with mashed avocado<br/>-I used only 1/4 cup of sugar and to that added 1 tbsp of molasses<br/>-I added a good amount of cinnamon, fresh ground nutmeg and powdered ginger. Probably about 3 Tbsp, 1/2 tsp, and 1/2 tsp respectively. Pumpkin Pie spice would probably also be great, I just don't have any.<br/><br/>They turned out very cakey (which I like) with an almost half-baked center (which I really like ;-))

      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!
