       To make cookies:  Preheat oven to 375~.  Grease baking sheets with
   shortening.  In large mixer bowl, combine shortening, sugar, egg, juice,
   peel and vanilla.  Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until
   well-blended.  Beat in carrots. In another bowl, combine oats, flour,
   baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Mix into creamed mixture
   at low speed just until blended.  Stir in raisins and nuts. Drop rounded
   tablespoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 10
   to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Do not overbake. Cool 2 minutes on
   baking sheet.  Remove cookies to foil to cool completely.
   
      To make frosting: In large bowl, combine cream cheese, shortening,
   powdered sugar, milk and extract.  Beat at medium speed until well-blended.
