These cookies are both flavorful and colorful. The shredded carrots add nice bright flecks of orange color.

"These carrot cookies were both delicious and looked great! I think the cookies had a good texture, and good moisture. I also think that the directions were very easy to follow. I made a few changes to the recipe that I thought added to the taste, however this is based on personal taste preference. I added a 1/2 tea of nutmeg and 1 tsp of cinnamon. I liked how these added to the flavors that were already present."

"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."

"These are a great little cake like cookie, not real sweet. BUT you should cook the carrots first, smash them up and then..make a butter cream frosting with zest of an orange and juice of the orange! Perfect tea cookie!!!!"

"This receipe piqued our interest and after reading previous reviews, my husband and I decided to saute the carrots in 1/2 tbsp butter before adding them to recipe; came out very good - sauteeing brought out the natural sweetness in carrots."

"The most tasteless cookie I have ever tasted. Think there is to much baking powder in it. Will not make again."
