This is a good recipe. It's from the Betty Crocker Recipe Box circa 1971. Betty also suggests an "Orange Butter Icing" which really completes this cookie.

I don't know if I would use coconut the next time I make these but they were pretty tasty. I made them at Halloween which was a good time because they come out orange.

This recipe is awesome! My mom even loved it! I will definitely make this again! Suggestion, if you want more of a carrot taste, use more than a cup of carrots. I also had to use more flour to make the mix more stiff.

These are very good & not very sweet, which is nice. Didn't have the coconut, which may have made this a 5-star, but otherwise was a cake texture.

I really liked these cookies! I didn't use coconut, just didn't have any. But they were really good!

These were really good. We were suprised-my husband ate most of them, hot right off the cookie sheet- I didn't use the coconut-

What a great recipe for fresh carrots! My kids love them - a great recipe for school lunches (without the nuts).

Made these cookies today and they were great. Used the leftover pulp from making carrot juice and added a little water. You can use the pulp for thickening soups and stews too.
