Carrot Cookies

Carrot cookies are always great inside Easter packages... they at least make you think you are having a healthy cookie :)   I made the spring flowers to go with the carrots & shipped them off last week to my inlaws and a few others.   My friend Norma said she loved the mini chocolate chip cut out cookie. I think it's probably my favorite but then again I'm a chocolate lover!

I used Americolor electric green with a touch of leaf green for the carrot tops & Americolor orange with a touch of tulip red for the carrot.

Aren't they cute with the spring flowers I made? 

If you haven't made cookies for Easter you should try this recipe...so yummy!

Sugarbakers’ Chocolate Mini-Chip Cookies
Print recipe here

1 c unsalted butter
1/3c granulated sugar
1/2 c light-brown sugar
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 ½ c all-purpose flour {I think they got a little overzealous with the flour…try 2 cups first, and work your way up}
½ tsp salt
1 ½ c semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Sift together the flour & salt.   In another bowl, cream together the butter & sugars.  Slowly add the flour & salt unti it’s completely mixed in.   Add  1 ½ cups semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips to the dough by hand.   Chill your dough for at least 30 minutes.  Roll out dough and bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes.   Sharp metal cookie cutters work best with this dough.
