Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cream shortening, soft butter and sugar.
  2. Add egg and pureed carrots. Beat well.
  3. Add orange juice and orange peel.
  4. Sift dry ingredients and add as mixer on low speed.
  5. Add nuts.
  6. Can cover and refrigerate before baking.
  7. Drop by teaspoon on greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  8. Place cookie sheet on cooling rack for 5 minutes.
  9. Remove cookies to another cooling rack, until cool to touch.
  10. Make icing from remaining orange juice, rind and confectioners sugar. I like to 'glaze' cookies, rather than 'ice' them. Let sit on drying rack for 1 hour. Place in covered container to store.
