Yes, yes, I know, this isn’t dinner… but wait, it does have all of the food groups! fruits/veggies – carrots and raisins, dairy – butter, protien – eggs, carbs – sugar/flour, fiber – oatmeal. So, one could say that these cookies could possibly make a well rounded meal… okay – so that is my story, and I am sticking to it! 🙂
I made these cookies for my neighbor’s birthday. She loves carrot cake, so, I thought, mmmm, how about carrot cookies?
Cream together the butter and sugars well. Add eggs and beat well. Add baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg, blend well.
Mix together flour and oatmeal and combine with creamed mixture. Stir in the raisins, grated carrots, and nuts. Drop by large rounded tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheet
Bake in a preheated 350°F oven 25 to 30 minutes or until browned along edges. If you are using a convection oven, lower temp by 25 degrees and watch the time closely. I started with 20 minutes and adjusted from there.
