    Geema's Note:

    If you like carrot cake you will love these cookies. I have had this recipe for years, tearing it out from a 1986 Family Circle Christmas cookie issue. Note that I make a few substitions to this original recipe....1/2 cup canola oil instead of butter, and I use whole wheat flour for health's sake. They come out great. Everyone loves these cookies and I don't even mention that they are a "health food" recipe. Doubling the ingredients works fine and the cookies freeze very well. My husband raids the fridge and eats them frozen!

      Geema, these cookies were wonderful and the combination of spices was excellent! I found them easy to make and my DH loved them! Thank you.

      I liked the fact the cookies contained raisins and carrots, but the spices were almost too overpowering with the quantity used; next time I think I would reduce the amount of spices. Also I didn't realize these cookies are "rock" shaped cookies, rather than flat cookies--that might have been a key fact to let people know how they are supposed to turn out looking (at least that helps me:). Thanks for posting the recipe Geema.

      Very, very good, moist, healthy cookies. I made them just like the recipe said, used butter, next time I will use more cinnamon. Love cinnamon. These are very good with a cup of coffee. Geema, Thank you so much for another tasty recipe.
