  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Measure butter and place in a large bowl. Heat in the microwave for 40 seconds or until melted. Add sugar and beat on medium speed until light. Add egg and vanilla and beat on low speed until fully mixed.
  • Add the carrots, ( and coconut, walnuts and raisins if using) to the wet ingredients and stir until combined.

  • Scoop about 1 1/2 tablespoonfuls of dough and place on the prepared baking sheets about 2" apart, flattening the dough slightly. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden, rotating the pans halfway through the baking time.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan and cool completely until cookies firm up.
