15 days til Christmas... Carrot Cookies

These Cookies are like delicious little bites of Carrot Cake... Everytime I make them they are a huge hit, and the best part is that they are so easy!

1/2 cup Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar (lightly packed)
1 egg
1 1/2 cups grated carrot
2 cups flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

Cream Butter and Sugar
Beat in Egg
Stir in carrot
In a separate bowl, whisk the remaining dry ingredients together and then add to the wet ingredients.
Mix well
Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets
Bake at 350F for about 10-12 minutes
(Makes about 3 dozen cookies)
For the glaze, just stir together some icing sugar with either milk or water... add some lemon juice or orange juice or cinnamon or whatever your heart desires and tastes good to you (before you drizzle on the cookies... taste it)... You want it thick enough to stay where you put it, and liquid enough to flow freely, either through a piping bag with a small round tip, or a ziploc bag with a small hole cut ino the corner (but cut the hole after you fill it)
