To puree the carrots, I cooked them and then added them with some of the cooking water to the blender. It took about 1 lb bag of frozen carrots to make 2 cups (if you have a little less or a little more it won't matter.)
Mock Pumpkin Cookies
In a large mixing bowl, beat 2 cups sugar (you can also use 1/2 cup sugar), 4 cups pureed cooked carrots, and 1 cup butter.
Mix in 1 whole egg.
Add 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cloves, 2 tsp baking powder, 2 tsp baking soda, and 1/2 tsp salt.
Add 4 cups flour (I used half whole wheat and half all-purpose flour).
Mix until combined. You can add 1 cup raisins, nuts or chocolate chips, if desired.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees or until browned.
