"Carrot" Cookies


Listen y'all, you can have as many of these cookies as you want because carrots are healthy!  I just don't recommend dipping them in ranch... ;)  Now these Carrot Cookies did not turn out perfect, but I think they are pretty darn cute.  I was telling Tall Tan Man, as we were looking at the terrible looking stems that; My lack of concern for perfection in life has allowed me a very happy person.  Just chew on that for a minute...

I'm not doing a full blown recipe, but a cliff notes version of how I made these carrots. As I was baking I got the idea that I could of used brownies instead of sugar cookies.  I might just have to make another batch this week to see how they turn out.  



Ingredients:

Sugar Cookies {I used THIS RECIPE}
Icing {same as above}
Orange and Green Candy Melt {from JoAnn Fabric}
* Skewer or toothpick

Directions:

1.  Make your cookies in a 9 by 13 inch pan and ice them


2.  Divide your 9 by 13 inch pan into thirds.  Hotdog style.


3.  Now using the tip on a sharp knife make a triangle pattern.  


4.  Cut out the triangles.  


5.  Melt the orange candy melt, place in a baggie, make a small hole in the corner, and drizzle over cookies.  


6. Melt the green candy melt and draw stems on wax paper.  Make sure these are thick and you let them harden completely. 


7.  Using a skewer or tooth pick create a hole in the back of the cookie so you can easily insert the stem.  Insert stem.  


Finished!  Now have one or twelve!


I really hope someone tries these out with brownies and please tell me how it goes!  Tag me on Instagram if you do.  :).  Hope you have a wonderful week!
