Carrot cookies recipe

         I know I have disappeared again from the blogosphere for sometime. As I had already mentioned in my previous post , I am spending my time with my family from India. My sis is with me for some more time and now as I have a good company , I plan to try out some yummy food as well. So you can expect some good posts in Creative Saga for sure.
          Meanwhile to add to the fun we had a perfect holiday last week on a trip to Bintan , Indonesia.  Together we had loads of fun as well as relaxed to our hearts content in the exotic resort .Spending hours in the pool I finally learnt to swim and overcome my water phobia...phew!!! We also had a great time at the beach. There were a variety of dishes in the buffet with a very few vegeterian options but we got to try some different cuisine like Italian and could indulge in some exotic desserts too!!
          Now coming to the recipe for today, I had made this carrot cookies from Usha's blog sometime ago. The cookies really tasted great and is a guilt free recipe as no butter goes into it unike the other cookie recipes. The carrot pulp acts as a excellent egg substitute and a good binding agent too as stated by Usha. Everyone at my place just loved the cookies and I do plan to bake more of these soon. Thanks a lot Usha for the wonderful recipe.

           Blend the carrot pieces along with a glass of water in a blender. Strain the mixture. Use the pulp for the cookies. You can have the juice as it is.
          Combine the sugar and oil. Mix well. Then add the flours followed by the carrot pulp. Make a dough of it. Now make small balls with the dough. Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake the cookies in preheated oven at 160c for 15 to 20 minutes.
           They will appear crumbly but will slightly harden after cooling.
