3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup finely shredded carrot

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

    Combine sugar, 1 cup butter and egg in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape dough into 30 (1-inch) balls, 30 (3/4-inch) balls and 60 (1x1/4-inch) logs. Place 1 (1-inch) ball onto ungreased cookie sheet; top with 1 (3/4-inch) ball and 2 logs for ears to create each bunny. (Make sure dough pieces are touching so that bunny is formed during baking.) Bake 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned around edges

My boys loved these cookies! It is a little time consuming, but it's definitely worth it. My boys are allergic to eggs, so I used the Energyx egg replacer for 2 eggs and it turned out just beautifully.

These cookies are excellent. The dough is easy to work with and the extra effort using cookie cutters or shaping bunnies is worth it.I have brought these to school when I substitute teach and even the pickiest kid wants seconds. They can't believe there are carrots in them.
