Carrot Cookies

Hey, don't skip past this recipe because it combines carrots and cookies!!! These are really scrumptious and the orange icing makes them irresistible!

1 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup mashed cooked carrots
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
2 tsp baking pwd
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups flour

Cream shortening and sugar. Add carrots, egg, lemon juice and vanilla. Sift (I never really sift, but if you want to you can . . .) flour with baking pwd and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 until light brown (very light brown).

Juice of one orange
Grated rind from orange
Enough powdered sugar to make spreading consistency

Spread on HOT cookies. These freeze well . . . Enjoy!
