DIRECTIONS

  • Cream shortening, soft butter and sugar.
  • Add egg and pureed carrots. Beat well.
  • Add orange juice and orange peel.
  • Sift dry ingredients and add as mixer on low speed.
  • Add nuts.
  • Can cover and refrigerate before baking.
  • Drop by teaspoon on greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  • Place cookie sheet on cooling rack for 5 minutes.
  • Remove cookies to another cooling rack, until cool to touch.
  • Make icing from remaining orange juice, rind and confectioners sugar. I like to 'glaze' cookies, rather than 'ice' them. Let sit on drying rack for 1 hour. Place in covered container to store.
