Cinnamon and Carrot Cookies

Ever wondered what to do with those few poor, slightly floppy carrots that are hanging about in the bottom of your vegetable tray??

Well, here you go.  An old wartime classic that as far as I’m concerned will never go out of fashion!  A brilliant way to get a bit of veg into the kiddies.
