Who says you can't get your vegetables while eating a cookie? Carrot chip cookies use white chocolate chips to create a wholesome and delicious spin on the traditional chocolate chip cookie. While the title may fool you, these cookies are delicious. If you are worried your guests won't like them, don't tell them the name of the cookie until they have tasted it. Once they have tried one, they will be back for more.
The recipe is easy to create, using the following ingredients:
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ cup butter
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
¾ cup coarsely grated carrots
½ cup walnuts
2/3 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium sized bowl, combine the following dry ingredients: flour, cinnamon, baking soda and nutmeg. Mix well. In another smaller bowl, cream the butter, sugars and egg in a large bowl. After the ingredients are creamy and smooth, blend in the grated carrot slowly making sure it is well combined with the mixture. Slowly add the nuts and white chocolate chips to the large bowl of ingredients. These are easiest to prepare if dropped by spoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet or a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until edges are lightly browned. The tops of the cookies will be soft to the touch. Allow cookies to cool slightly on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.
