Oh, heavens it’s hot here. Actual temperatures are in the high 90’s with the heat index well over 100 degrees. And, “it’s not a dry heat”. Sorry I couldn’t resist, that saying is kind of funny because hot is hot. The last thing that I wanted to do is turn on my oven, but I’ve been going through baking withdrawal. So, the other day I got up uber early and mixed up this Citrus Carrot Cookies recipe.
When I was trying to decide what to bake, I came across this recipe for carrot cookies in my family recipe box. I had everything that I needed and hey, carrots are healthy right? The recipe was very basic, and I really wanted to do a recipe makeover.
You guys, this cookie is just delicious. They taste fresh and crisp and a little bit like sunshine. This isn’t a big cookie, and it’s not overly sweet. The light citrus drizzle adds a welcome bright sweetness to this cookie.
