    Tracyinthekitchen's Note:

    These soft citrus-infused carrot cookies get a moisture barrier and a little extra zing from the orange flavored frosting. They are not anything like spicy, heavy carrot cake, they are light and make a wonderful summer cookie. My mother got this recipe from a dear friend of our family, and I have not seen nor had another carrot cookie like these anywhere else.

      Amazing cookies. Citrus-y and moist. Addictive. Beware ;)
