Lazy Weekend..Carrot Cake Cookies

My house is a mess, and i don't care.

My works are missing, and I don't care. I do but its nice to just lay around.

Here's a healthy sweet recipe for you.I haven't made this yet. It sure does sound yummy.

Carrott Cake Cookies
2 cups quick or old fashioned oats
1 1/2 all purpose flour or self rising flour
1 tsp baking soda (skip if using self rising flour)
1 tsp salt (skip if using self rising flour)
4 Tbs Promise Buttery Spread
2 Neufchatel or 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
1 1/4 firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/3 cup lowfat vanilla yogart
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup raisans
1/2 cup shredded carrot (about 1 large carrot)

1. Combine oats, flour, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl; set aside.

2. Beat Promise buttery spread, cream cheese, and brown sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg, yogart, and vanilla until blended. Gradually beat in oat mixture just until blended. Stir in raisans and carrot.

3. Turn dough onto wax paper and form into four 7-in long logs. Wrap tightly and freeze 2 hours or until firm.

4. preheat oven 375. For 2 servings, slive off four 1 inch rounds from log, then refresh remaining dough until ready to bake. Arrange frozen cookie slices on baking sheet. Let stand 10 minutes. Bake 8 minutes until edges are golden and centers are set. Cool 2 minutes on wire rack; removie from sheet and cool completely.
