Cookies with grated Carrot

Morotskaka, men i form av kex. Ja, så kan man säga om dessa kex. Inte knapriga, mera kakaktiga. Goda!

Carrot Cake in a cookie shape. Yes, that's what you can say of these cookies. They are more cake like than crunchy. Good anyhow!


Morotskex

120 g smör
170 g farinsocker
1 ägg
120 g mjöl
80 g havregryn

1 stor morot, riven
1 tsk vaniljsocker
1 tsk kanel
1 tsk bakpulver
nypa salt

Blanda smör med socker och ägg. Rör ner mjöl, bakpulver, kanel och salt. Tillsätt havregryn, riven morot och vaniljsocker. Rulla bollar av degen och lägg dem på bakplåtspapper. Grädda i 180 grader ca 15 minuter. Låt svalna.


Carrot Cookies

    completely!

  7. I've had carrot cake but never cookies! I think with the carrots, they might be legal to eat for breakfast!
