This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Natalia of gatti fili e farina : Gingered Carrot Cookies. I actually almost skipped this week because Dorie describes these cookies as tasting almost like scones and I'm not a big scone fan. I'm so glad I decided to give it a go, though, because these cookies are fabulous!
When Dorie first created these, she set out to make a cookie that tasted like carrot cake. They definitely don't taste like carrot cake at all, but that doesn't mean that they aren't good. They are delicious little morsels! I'm not quite sure if I would consider these scone-like, but they are definitely cakey cookies. All the add-ins - the carrots, coconut, and raisins (I omitted the nuts) - gave these cookies a nice chewy texture. The ginger gave these cookies the perfect little boost too!
Thanks Natalia, for hosting this week. If you would like the recipe, you can find it here. Make sure you check out the TWD Blogroll, to see how everyone else enjoyed these sweet treats!
