I have an abundance of carrots in the fridge, so I thought of making these delicious carrot cookies for a sweet treat. Topped with a decadent orange icing, these cookies will be the perfect ending to any dinner. These cookies are also perfect for a ladies luncheon. Enjoy!

How to Make BONNIE’S CARROT COOKIES

Step-by-Step

  1. Note: There is no liquid in the recipe. Don't add any.
    This recipe makes 24 good sized cookies. The icing recipe makes a generous amount. More than enough to coat two batches of cookies.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 10 - 12 minutes, or more. It really depends on how large you make your cookies. These are big, and it took 23 minutes.
  3. Mix all the ingredients by hand and form a ball.
    Use a melon scoop to form small balls of dough.
  4. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet. I use an air baking pan. Press the balls down with flat fingers to about 1/2 inch thick. They do spread a little.
  5. Cool cookies on a rack.
  6. MAKE THE ICING:
    Wash an orange and dry it with paper towels. Zest the orange into a medium mixing bowl. Cut the orange in half and squeeze only 1/2 of the orange into the bowl.
  7. Add powdered sugar (a little at a time) to the bowl and, mix well. Using a hand mixer, beat the icing smooth until it is thick enough to spread, adding more powdered sugar if needed.
  8. You can serve these plain, or coated with icing..
  9. These are a good size cookie, about the size of my palm.
  10. These cookies are amazing chilled in the fridge. Enjoy!
