   I have made these cookies, and they are GREAT!  They're
   from the Betty Crocker Recipe Card Library.
   Heat oven to 400. Mix shortening, sugar, eggs and carrots.
   Blend in flour, baking powder & salt. Stir in coconut. Drop
   dough by teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto lightly
   greased baking sheet.
   Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until no imprint remains when
   touched lightly. Immediately remove from baking sheet.
   Cool. Frost with orange butter icing.  Makes 4 dozen
   cookies.
   
   Orange Butter Icing:
   Blend butter and sugar. Stir in orange peel and juice.
   Beat until frosting is smooth and of spreading
   consistency.JM.
