    mangomom's Note:

    This recipe is from The New York Times Jewish Cookbook. When my family asked what was baking, their reaction to the idea of carrot cookies was decidedly unenthusiastic. However, after tasting the cookies, their opinion greatly improved and the cookies quickly disappeared! I veganized the recipe by omitting the egg and using Ener-G egg replacer, and no one guessed they were vegan. They are a cakey cookie with bits of carrot throughout, quite colorful and tasty.

    • bit of cinnamon in icing


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Cream the shortening and sugar together until light and fluffy.
    3. 3
      Beat in egg.
    4. 4
      Mix in carrot and vanilla.
    5. 5
      Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and stir into the batter.
    6. 6
      Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until done. (I convection baked at 333 degrees for about 14 minutes.).
    7. 7
      Cool on a wire rack and then spread with Orange Icing.
    8. 8
      To make icing: Combine orange juice, orange rind, cinnamon if using, and enough powdered sugar to make a spreading consistency. You will likely end up with more icing than needed, so you might want to start with less than 1/4 cup juice. Spread frosting over cookies. Any extra icing is good on graham crackers.
    9. 9
      I stored my cookies in the refrigerator, as it is quite warm where I live and the icing runs.

      My mom started making these cookies in the early 60's and I recently ran across her hand written recipe. The only difference is that she put 2 tsps. of grated orange peel in the cookie dough as well as in the icing. These are wonderful bits of sweetness that I used to ask Mom to bake for my Christmas present.
