Awesome little cookie! DH took one bite and said "mmmmm, a healthy cookie too!". I didn't have the heart to tell him about the half cup of butter... LOL! I made these exactly as written except I had to leave out the nuts. I did use a cookie scoop and they came out beautifully round and tall. I like that you can see and taste the carrot. YUM! Thanks for posting, Big Bad Brenda! Made for ZWT8 Family Picks.

These were very good cakey cookies. I used a brown sugar alternative and the lovely spice of the cookies helped to disguise the fake sugar. Made for ZWT6.
