TWD: Gingered Carrot Cookies

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Natalia of gatti fili e farina.

I was a little hesitant about this week’s project, but only because I wasn’t sure how well carrot cookies would go over with the family. Some of the kids like carrots raw, one only likes them cooked, and the only other treat they’ve had them in has been carrot cake.

Of course, I shouldn’t have worried! These cookies are delicious – soft and very moist with just a slight carrot flavor. I actually made them Sunday and there are only a handful left as of today.

I’ve still got enough of the ingredients to make another batch, which I’ll probably do again this weekend. I also decided to add a little more “obvious” sweetness and did a thick frosting of cream cheese, powdered sugar and a little milk. As for the cookies themselves, I added a pinch of cinnamon (I couldn’t help it) and I also left out the raisins since I’m the only one who likes them in cookies (my family is weird). They were perfect!
