TWD- Gingered Carrot Cookies

August 3, 2010– Natalia of gatti fili e farina chose Gingered Carrot Cookies on page 162 form Baking From My Home To Yours By Dorie Greenspan.

These are simple cookies with a heap of fairly healthy add ins.  What they remind me of is the cornflake ‘rock cakes’ on the side of the box (with the noteable exception of the carrot and ginger).  The texture on the edges is shortbread or sable like and towards the centre more scone or cake like.  Rather interesting- I enjoyed them more than I thought I might.

Now check the TWD blogroll for the other carrot cookies out there.
