Grating takes FOREVER.

I decided to make these cookies because I wanted to use my Ninja, and I already had all of these ingredients. (Turns out I didn’t, though, as the book that came with the machine was misprinted and left out the vegetable shortening - glad I checked the iPad app when I noticed this cookie recipe didn’t call for any butter / margarine / shortening!)

I decided to make these cookies because I wanted to use my Ninja, and I already had all of these ingredients. (Turns out I didn’t, though, as the book that came with the machine was misprinted and left out the vegetable shortening - glad I checked the iPad app when I noticed this cookie recipe didn’t call for any butter / margarine / shortening!) After getting the vegetable shortening from the store, it was relatively smooth sailing. However, grating those carrots took forever. I think I got through two full episodes of Bones on Netflix (about an hour and a half) before I had the full cup of grated carrots. I did use baby carrots because that’s what I had and needed to use up, so I used the small-hole side of the grater because the big ones looked too big for the baby carrots. Maybe that contributed to the problem of it taking forever. Also, the dough was VERY sticky. Made a mess using my fingers and a teaspoon to drop the dough onto the cookie sheets. They turned out tasting alright. They were much less sweet than your average cookie, so I think ”sweet carrot cookies” might be a bit of a misnomer. Much better warm than room temperature, as most cookies. I probably wouldn’t make them again because I’m not a fan of seemingly-endless grating, but if you don’t mind that or sticky fingers, this recipe is definitely worth a try!

Yummy!

I have made these twice. They are so fast and easy. I just chop the carrots in the food processor and then switch out the blade and make the cookies. I use whole wheat flour and reduced the sugar and they were DELICIOUS! For a fun variation I added a little bit of ginger root to the carrots when I processed them and that was also really good.
