mashed cooked carrots
grated orange zest
Wonderful cookies. After reading other reviews I made them large since they were so soft and didn't spread. I froze them and pulled them out a couple at a time to thaw for a nice snack for about 3 weeks and they were just as good. The icing makes it.
My Mom used to make these all the time when I was growing up. They were great. I made some the other day and they were still good. I don't remember my Mom adding coconut though. They don't spread very much and are soft and tasty.
Pretty good.Just not the absolute best.
Very yummy. I did slight modifications though, added 1.5 T of cinnamon, plus about a teaspoon of coconut extract to the cookie batter. I followed the directions for the frosting but then found it not quite the desired consistency so I did add an additional 2 tablespoons of orange juice. They were very soft and cake like, and the frosting added just the extra sweetness they need to be delish.
Yummy - love the icing!! :)
