My Grams Carrot Cookies

My Gram always had 3 brown cookie jars with cookies in them at all times. We had more family and friends stop by just to grab a cookie. You never had to ask just walk in say hi and help yourself. This was one of her old stand bys. I've made these cookies with 1 cup canola oil instead of shortening and replace 1 cup of whole wheat white flour for a cup of white for a healthier version. The kids on the soccer team loved them.
