Recipe Directions for Carrot Cake Cookies, Inside Out

  2. Whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.

  3. Beat together butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla in a bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Mix in carrots, nuts, and raisins at low speed, then add flour mixture and beat until just combined.

Cool cookies on sheets on racks 1 minute, then transfer cookies to racks to cool completely.
