Citron-glazed Carrot Cookies

  • 210 g All-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 80 g Carrot, grated
  • 50 g Walnut, chopped
  • 110 g Margarine, softened
  • 100 g Sugar
  • 1 tsp Sugar syrup
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp Orange juice
  • 1 tsp Orange zest
  • 50 g Coconut shreds
  • 100 g Citron glaze
  1. In a large bowl, beat sugar and margarine with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add in sugar syrup and continue beating until fluffy. Add egg to sugar mixture and stir in orange juice and zest.
  2. Sift in flour and baking soda gradually and mix well. Blend in grated carrots, coconut shreds and chopped walnuts. Mix until the dough just combined. Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
  3. Shape 1 generous teaspoon dough into a 3cm ball and place on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing rounds about 2 inches apart. Bake in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Glaze.

I like carrots and orange in the same recipe, so I will have to try this one. You guys are killing me since I really have never been a baker!
