As part of the 'Zaar World tour, I was looking for dessert recipes suitable for Rosh Hashanah. The original caome from allrecipes.combut I've made a number of changes to make this moist and tender cookie not only healthier but more tasty. These are so good, you'll love them holiday or no holiday. Kids will especially love them and you'll enjoy sneaking a little veggie into their afternoon snack.

Perfect for my daughter's lunch box! I omitted the lemon extract (didn't have) and added 1/2 tsp of ground all spice and 1 tsp of cinnamon. I also added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1/2 cup of golden raisins. They would probably have been a little too bland if I had made it as-is, but this is a great recipe to customize. Thanks for sharing!
