I just baked a double batch of these cookies. It made 5 dozen large cookies. I baked them for 20minutes and the turned out perfect. thanks

Very yummy! Crunchy but pliable, of course very similar to oatmeal cookies but the carrot adds an interesting texture as well as lots of nutrition. I thought 25-30 minutes at 350 looked too long; mine were thoroughly done between 15 and 17 minutes. Thanks, grandma, I'll definitely make these again!
