carrot cake & birthdays.

pop quiz: these carrot cake cookies are:

a) perfect for this rainy fall weather that snuck up on us;
b) deliciously perfect;
c) a virtual shout-out to my sister for her birthday;
d) all of the above.

you know the answer. :) when i saw these i immediately thought of my big sister, because every year when we got to pick our birthday cake, she picked carrot. {it took me a LONG time to be ok with that choice, due to my picky childhood palate}. for the record: i will always pick confetti cake for mine. she is celebrating her birthday today a few thousand miles away in texas, but hopefully feeling the love from san francisco!

you can find the recipe for these bad boys right here. they're on my to-do list, that's for sure!

happy birthday dear katie!
