Pretty runny batter. Turned out to be pretty flat cookies which were fine. I topped with orange cream cheese frosting. I left out the walnuts. Got lots of complements! Read More

Amazing! I used whole-wheat flour for the all-purpose flour. I used 1 can carrots (drained) that I pureed along with a handful of raw baby carrots grated. I juiced some Cuties oranges and used the fresh juice in the batter & frosting. In the frosting I added some Grand Mariner. Baked as instructed- they came out perfect- soft- not hard. Cooled then frosted. I WILL make these again! Read More

loved this simple recipe. i used canned carrots mushed up before adding because i had extra on hand. and to adjust for high altitude i added 1/4 cup more orange juice and 2 T flour. topped with store bought cream cheese frosting. i made a tray of these for teacher appreciation at my kids' school - they were a huge hit! am making again and again! Thank you Debbie Rowe! Read More

Well I used fresh grated carrots 1/2 cup. The mixture turned out very dense and I could roll them Into balls. They stayed that way. Took about 18 Minutes to bake. I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup honey. The cookie balls turned out okay. I'll make them again. Read More
