Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For the buttercream icing: Cream together the sugar and butter in a small bowl until light and fluffy. Mix in the zest and vanilla extract.

For the carrot cookies: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cream together the butter and sugar using an electric hand mixer or a stand mixer until light and fluffy, at least 5 minutes. Add in the eggs one at a time and beat for 2 minutes after each addition. Mix in the carrot baby food, orange zest and vanilla.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat together on low speed until incorporated, 1 minute.

Using a small 2-ounce ice cream scoop, drop by heaping scoops onto the prepared baking sheets, 15 cookies per sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, rotating halfway through. Transfer to a cooling rack. Frost the cookies with the buttercream icing while still warm.

Cook's Note

Look for baby food primarily made with only 2 ingredients: carrots and water, such as Beech Nut brand.
