Carrot Cookies / #SundaySupper

Today for Sunday Supper we are featuring root vegetables, which are very popular right now. So I thought that some Carrot Cookies needed to be on the menu! Root vegetables are not only good tasting, but they are very high in nutrients, they store well, and they give you the ability to use locally sourced food, even in the winter months. Carrots are a root vegetable that is extremely versatile. They can be used for everything from an appetizer to a dessert, and can be cooked in a bazillion different ways! These carrot cookies are quick to make, and even quicker if you leave off the frosting. They have a great taste, that I know you will love!
