Sunburst Oranges: Orange Carrot Cookies

You'll be surprised at how great the combination of flavors are, especially with the citrusy glaze.

Orange Carrot Cookies

Makes 3 dozen
Prep time - 20 mins Cook time - 15 mins 

 1 1/2 cups shortening
 2 cups white sugar
 2 eggs
 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
 2 cups mashed cooked carrots
 4 cups all-purpose flour
 2 teaspoons baking powder
 1 teaspoon salt
 1 cup chopped walnuts
 1 cup chopped walnuts
 1 cup confectioners' sugar
 1 Sunburst orange, zested and juiced

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla and carrots. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the walnuts. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly golden. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the glaze, put 1 cup of the confectioners' sugar into a medium bowl. Grate the rind of the orange into the bowl with the sugar. Squeeze in enough juice from the orange to form a thin but spreadable consistency. Mix until smooth. If necessary, stir in more confectioners' sugar. Spread onto the cooled cookies. Store in an airtight container.
