Spiced Carrot Chews
Makes about 6 dozen 2-1/2" cookies

1 c. margarine
1 c. firmly packed light brown sugar

1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

1-1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
2 c. rolled oats
2 c. shredded carrots
3/4 c. chopped nuts
1/2 to 1 c. raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In large mixer bowl, blend until fluffy margarine and brown sugar.
Add egg and vanilla and blend.

Add and combine just until mixed the flour, baking powder, cinnamon,
nutmeg, cloves, oats, carrots, nuts and raisins.

Drop rounded tablespoons of the mixture on greased baking sheets
and bake for 13-15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet
and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

NOTE: I used the full cup of margarine in the recipe, but after
tasting the resulting product I believe that one could reduce it
by at least half (possibly more), perhaps substituting applesauce
for the remainder to provide the adequate liquid in the mixture.
