Carrot Cake Cookies
 
My DW requested these from my HC recipe box and I was really pleased with how they turned out. Very light and fluffy with a great flavor.
If I were making these for myself I would have made a cream cheese icing sweetened to taste but my DW wanted them as is.

Carrot Cake Cookies (yeild 2 doz. @ 1 carb each)
wet
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 med. carrot, shredded fine
dry
1 1/2 cup cake and cookie flour mix
1 tsp splenda quick pack
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup pecans, chopped(optional)

Mix wet ingredients in an electric mixer until combined.
Mix dry ingredients together and add to the wet, mixing until a batter is formed.
Drop mounded, teaspoon sized, balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes or golden brown.
Mine took 15 minutes.

Kevin, when you use shortening do you use the butter flavor one, the regular or both?

I always use the butter flavor if I have it, otherwise I just use the regular.

I'd start with 1/2 cup and then judge if you think 1 cup would make the batter too wet.
