  • 1 ts Vanilla
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 3/4 c Flour
  • 1 ts Baking powder

Heat oven to 350F. In a large bowl beat sugar and margarine until light and
fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; blend well. Lightly spoon flour into measuring
cup; level off. Stir in flour and baking powder; mix well. Stir in carrots,
walnuts and raisins. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto
ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until edges are
light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets; cool completely. In a small
bowl, combine powdered sugar, orange peel and enough orange juice for
desired consistancy; mix well. Frost cooled cookies. Yield 3 1/2 dozen.

NOTES : This is a "cake" like cookie, that has wonderful flavor. A great
way to get kids to eat carrots. They taste more like the orange frosting.
My kids love them.
