This is a great recipe. I sandwich two together with cream cheese frosting for Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies.

I made these for our small town bingo group. They were a big hit. I could only find a 15.25 oz. box of Carrot cake mix. It worked o.k. I used walnuts instead of pecans I also made my frosting using 1/2 cube butter, 8 oz. cream cheese, 2 cups powdered sugar, & vanilla. They were sooooo good!!!

These cookies are fantastic! I have made them several times in the past couple of years.. I add 1/2 c shredded coconut and some golden raisins. Spice cake mix works well also if you don't have carrot cake. - just add more carrots. I agree, actual measuremnts shoudl be part of any recipe - not just 2 shredded carrots . Sizes vary. Using a food processor to shred them is the way to go.

I use the baby carrots instead, I like the taste better

Try Jr. baby food carrots instead of grating them.

instead of shredding them you might be able to peel them, cut off the fat end and put them in a small food processor!

C"mon people!!! Just shred 2 regular size carrots---it's that easy.

i was wondering the same thing. is it big carrots, medium carrots or what?LOL and what exactly does 'finely shredded' mean? goodness, a little more detail would be great here.

Graters, and processors, have different sized blades. Use a smaller hole to make a "finer" shred so the carrot cooks while the cookie does. I have been cooking for 60 years and taught my sons to cook from the time they were little. Not everyone had that experience. Making impatient, or even rude remarks, to people who have questions doesn't help them or you.

What does "2 shredded carrots" mean? Has anyone made these cookies & come up with an amount that works? I'm guessing 1/2 cup....
