ORANGE BUTTER ICING
Heat oven to 400 F. Mix shortening, butter, sugar, eggs, and carrots.
Blend flour, baking powder, and salt into shortening mixture. Mix in coconut. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls about 2" apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until no imprint remains when touched lightly. Frost cooled cookies with icing.
