Gingered Carrot Cookies
gatti fili e farina chose Gingered Carrot Cookies this week. I wasn't really excited about these cookies, but that's why you participate in a group like this, to try a recipe that you might not otherwise think twice about. However, I was pleasantly suprised by these cookies. For some reason I thought these would be just like carrot cakes, and they were not. Neither the ginger nor the carrots overpowered these little cookies. They were mildly spiced and slightly cripsy on the outside but still soft and moist on the inside. Mimi Jr. thought they were like scones, filled with nuts and raisins (no coconut for us this time). With a cup of coffee they were the perfect breakfast cookie, tasty and not too sweet.
