Delicious little gems! The description is totally accurate - they are super easy to make. The hubby took one bite, not knowing what they were, and said "these aren't cookies, they're carrot cake!" Yep. Delicious carrot cake cookies. Thanks for sharing! Made for play in For Your Consideration tag game at Food Friends & Fun.

Even though there are a lot of ingredients, these really ARE easy carrot cake cookies. I actually like to measure out lots of spices... I feel like an alchemist and I use up spices that sometimes just sit in my cupboard... and I thought this was a fun recipe to make and to eat. Delicious, chewy cookies. I definitely recommend using parchment paper... these are sticky little guys, but they came off clean and easily with parchment paper. These will be perfect at Easter supper tomorrow. I can't wait to share them... kind of. Maybe I'll keep a few at home for me! Thanks for a fantastic recipe!
