Ryan found this one, too, after he had located the meatloaf recipe. He told me that his father likes cookies, everyone likes oatmeal cookies, and making them would be good amusement for a Friday night. I made a couple of minor changes, and here they are!
JAMES BEARD'S OATMEAL CARROT COOKIES
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup grated carrot
1/2 tsp salt
1-1/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup oats (quick, steel cut or rolled)
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Cream the butter until fluffy; add the sugar and blend well. Beat in the vanilla and egg, then add the carrot. Sift together the flour, powder and salt and beat into the creamed mixture, then stir in the oats and walnuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets and bake at 375F for 10 to 12 minutes.
Happy Weekending, everyone!
