Carrot Cake Cookies


**This is a revisit from a prevous post**

Another recipe from Martha Stewart’s Cookies cookbook. I found this one knowing I would have to try it one day and today being such a rainy blustery day I thought what the heck it is the perfect day for baking cookies. These unlike so many other recipes that I use I didn’t alter this one and they were perfect. If you like carrot cake you will love these cookies. Give them a try I will guarantee they won’t last long.

1/2 teaspoon ginger
2 cups old fashioned oats

In a separate bowl combine flour, soda, powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger set aside.

In a mixer beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy about 3 minutes, add eggs and vanilla mix well. Add in flour mixture and mix until well combined. Add in oats, carrots and raisins, mix until just combined. Put in another bowl and chill for at least 1 hour.

    I'm sure they're delicious. I'm not big on baking or sweets, but about once or twice a year, I give it a try. I'll add this to my recipe box. 🙂 Thanks.
