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.
