Cooking: Soft Carrot Cookies

These cookies have always been one of my favorite desserts for my father to do, and I have no idea why I did not try to bake some myself sooner! This is my grand-mother's recipe but there are plenty of alternatives on the net such as honey carrot cookies, orange carrot cookies, carrot oatmeal cookies, etc.

I used:

  • 1 cup margarine (or softened butter)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup shredded and cooked carrots

In a mixing bowl, cream margararine, then add brown sugar and mix well.

Add the egg, mix well.

Add vanilla, flour and baking powder, and gradually add shredded cooked carrots.

Mix well.

Drop by small rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 375° for around 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Do not overbake if you want your cookies to be soft!

This recipe should yield around 24 cookies, so feel free to double it. Enjoy!


  1. I never thought to make a carroty sugar cookie before... sounds so yummy :)

  2. i love carrot cake so probably would love these too! yummy

  3. I miss baking! I am trying to learn vegan alternatives for traditional baking staples. If I could figure that out, then these cookies would be at the top of the list.

  4. Oh miam ils ont l'air siii bon :)

  5. Looks yummy and pretty easy to make - I think I might give it a try; something different besides my usual banana bread!

  6. Miam miam, c'est une bonne idée! On a besoin que quelqu'un d'autre y pense à notre place parfois hihihi

  10. @Mandy : You can easily find vegan alternatives on the net, for example, banana and applesauce are great alternatives for eggs (:
