Real Carrot Cookies

"Real Carrot Cookies" are an excellent choice for someone who wants something sweet but still get some health benefits along the way. I made this for my mom's birthday and both and she and my dad loved, loved, loved it. They thought it was incredible! They raved and raved about it that night and then a few days later. To quote my dad "the best cookies he's ever had" and let me tell you in his 62 years on earth he has his fair share of cookies. I promise that you will love these and so will everyone else that you make them for. Enjoy!
