These cookies were so moist & delicious! The prep time did take a little bit longer than 20 minutes because it takes a while to grate enough carrots to fill a cup. I think I would like to try this same recipe with canned pumpkin instead of carrots to make a pumpkin pie cookie. Thanks for the great recipe!

Thought these needed a little extra oomph, so added more cinnamon and vanilla than called for.

These cookies were very moist, and so good. I found them a tad bland, and will add more cinnamon and possibly some nutmeg next time. I didn't ice them, that might add more flavour, but cream cheese would increase the fats and you know what they say 'a minute on the lips and a lifetime on the hips' *grins* Thanks for posting. Will sure be making these again, as they disappeared very quickly...and were easy to make
