Cookies for You

When I was at International Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, a promotional bookmark, with a cookie recipe on the back, was given out at the launch of my new book Quilting Those Flirty 30's. Inside the book you will find 12 more family favorites.  I wanted to share this recipe with you.  They are delicious!

Carrot Chip Cookies 
3 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup butter or margarine
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups grated carrots
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/3 cups white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, sugars, and eggs in a large bowl. Blend in carrots. Mix all dry ingredients together and add to carrot mixture.  Beat just until blended. Stir in nuts and chips. Drop by rounded teaspoon full on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 14 minutes. Makes approximately 4 dozen. Enjoy!
