Ingredients and Directions:

Into a blender:

  • ¾ cup Olive Oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ¼ tsp. lemon extract (opt) or lemon juice

Chop 3 or 4 big carrots into small pieces. Keep blending and adding until it forms like a soft mush. Pour over flour mixture and blend well.

Sift together 3 times and place in large bowl:

  • 2 cups flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp. soda (opt)
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt

You may crumble minute oatmeal if the mixture needs more solid form.

Cover with Saran Wrap and refrigerate. (May even wait a day or two before baking).

Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes (depending on your oven)

Frosting (apply while cookies are still a bit warm):

  • 2 tbs. frozen orange juice
  • 2 tbs. butter
  • Powdered sugar to form spreadable coating
