Easter Cookies - kind of

I had plans to make different kind of cookies for Easter, but the time got away from me and I only ended up making one. I think it's a good one though.

First, it starts with these sugary, orange strips. Can you guess what they are? They're carrots! I didn't take any pictures while making these because I wasn't sure if they would turn out or not. I found a recipe for candied orange peels and just substituted the carrots. Believe it or not, but they are addictive to just munch on!

Next up is one of my favorite ways to add flavor to my cookies and that is to brown my butter. I just take the amount called for in the recipe - brown it and let it harden up a bit before mixing it up with the cookie dough.

I just used the recipe off the back of the chocolate chip cookie bag (in this case, I used white chocolate chips) and came up with these yummy cookies. Not that I would know - since I taste-tested just a "few". ;) Let's say it's a good thing I'm going to see family tomorrow and will hopefully pass these off to them. I hope they like them as much as I do!
