    Deb's Recipes's Note:

    These drop-style cookies have a cakey texture and are not overly sweet; once topped with an easy-to-make pineapple glaze, they are just right! This recipe was created for the Ready Set Cook #10 Contest.

      Pretty tasty cookies. I only had 1/3 cup of carrot, so I substituted 1/3 cup of chopped apple for the rest of the carrot. Used cinnamon, all spice, and nutmeg, and left out the raisins (all out). Used 1 cup whole wheat flour for 1 cup of the white. I also added a splash of lemon juice to the glaze to brighten the taste a bit. I'll probably make these cookies again - they would be great for a brunch.

      Excellent cookies! The meadley of pineapple, carrot, raisins and pecans is just wonderful especially paired with the cinnamon. I did use half whole wheat flour as suggested. I love the soft, moist, cake like consistency of these cookies. I lioved them both with and without the glaze. Good luck in RSC #10!
