Carrot Cookies

Having tried the latest concoction of these supermarket cookies, I couldn't wait to get started and with carrot cake as one of my favourites, these had to be a winner.
Cake like cookies, with a handful of golden raisins and little chopped nuts thrown into the mixture gave them yummy gem centres.

I loved these cookies but would perhaps flatten the cookie mixture whilst popping onto the trays, to make then a little thinner.  Either way - they are lovely, i'm sure!
