Reeni 25/5/09 04:28

These look so soft and delicious! I've never had carrots in a cookie. Your kitties sound so sweet! You should show their pictures some time!

Justin 25/5/09 05:11

wow, this is a new one for me -- i've definitely never heard of carrot cookies before

Ivy 25/5/09 07:07

Reading through the recipe I was expecting to see savory cookies but I see there is sugar in them and since the carrots are naturally sweet I think sweet cookies with carrots is a great idea.

Finla 25/5/09 09:10

good idea to use carrot for cookies!! carrot is really inexpensive here..it's never cross my mind to to use carrot at all for cookies!! always throw carrot away when turn to black color!! Thanks for sharing!

These sound like a great savory cookie! These ingredients would be delicious in a cornbread too!

Christo Gonzales 25/5/09 16:52

angie this is an excellent cookie or is it more of a biscuit?

Fearless Kitchen 25/5/09 16:57

This is a really fun and pretty idea. I've never been a big carrot fan, but I think in this kind of context they'd be just fine.

@Chow and Chatter, burpandslurp, Ivy, Fearless Kitchen, Justin, Happy cook, nath, Beachlover's Kitchen
I am sure you guys would love these, they taste really good and very easy to prepare too.
Nice to see you back :-)
Oh, yeah, they are sweet when they are asleep....or they would make a whole room completely messy.
I must agree with you, the texture are more a biscuit or scone than a cookie.
A quick corn bread for the breakfast would be yummy.

These sound so interesting! My husband loves carrot cake, so I bet he'd like these too.

What a great combination of flavors in this unique carrot cookie! The spices and the sesame seeds sound really good here!

Chef E 30/5/09 16:14
