These Frosted Carrot Orange Cookies are cake like with a citrus-y frosting. Mmmmm! They are great in the spring but awesome year round. I don’t think there is any bad time for some really good cookies. Don’t you agree?
One of my all time favorite cookies are these cookies that my Mom made growing up. I haven’t really had them anywhere else and every time I make them, they remind me of home. They are the perfect springy, refreshing cookie.
These orange cookies are unlike any other cookie out there but once you try them, you’ll want to make them again and again!

My recipe for a similar cookie uses jarred baby food carrots. Your recipe seems a little more up to date and a lot prettier. I. Excited to have a new option
It’s a sneaky way to get carrots into dessert. Thank you, Mique, for sharing.

My gram used to make these every Christmas and I’d lost the original recipe. Thank you for posting this somewhat unusual (but incredibly delicious) cookie recipe! Gram’s tradition will be back on the cookie table this year!!
