MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 20, 2014

These were very good, but I did change them up a bit. I added some cinnamon, raisins and chopped walnuts, then made a simple cream cheese frosting with reduced fat cream cheese to spread on top. They tasted just like carrot cake! Without my changes I don't think they'd be sweet enough for my tastes.

I LOVE carrot cookies made from raw carrots. Thank you for a recipe that gives me a taste of my childhood half-a-century later.
