First cream together butter and sugar, beat in egg then add vanilla.
In a separate bowl combine the flour and salt, baking powder .Add the carrot+cheddar Cheese mixture.
Mix in both the mixture gently , don’t beat in .Now refrigerate the dough covered for 1-2 hrs ,its very wisely to do so as it becomes pretty manageable while putting them on baking tray .
Preheat oven 350 deg F, now roll into small balls , place them in the baking sheets at least 2-3 inch apart (as theCookies will increase in diameter while being baked) , gently press in with fork .
Bake for 15 mints or till barely golden, take out and cool .Decorate with Jams/Marmalades/Syrups of your choice.

Wishing everybody
Merry Christmas.
