Reviews for Carrot Oatmeal Cookies
"These were good cookies, but a little too soft for my taste. My family devoured them though! Luckily, the recipe makes a lot. Just not my personal taste."
"This is a very good, moist cookie. I found that they stuck together when stored in a zip lock bag at room temperature, BUT if kept in the freezer, they don't stick together and they are still soft and moist. A good solution!"
"Dont know what I did but these were not good-"
"147 calories for ONE cookie? And who eats just ONE cookie for a snack? A good majority of regular size candy bars have fewer calories than two of these cookies!"
