CARROT CAKE SANDWICH COOKIES

Who is ready for Spring? Today I’m bringing you a fabulous recipe for Easter, Mother’s Day – any Spring occasion. Everytime I make these Carrot Cake Cookies they are met with rave reviews. I’ve updated the recipe after a few reader comments and I am sure that these will come out great, and you will love them too!

This recipe takes all the flavors of carrot cake (carrots, cinnamon, walnuts and coconut) and loads them into soft and chewy cookies sandwiching a generous filling of cream cheese frosting. These cookies are faster and easier than making a whole carrot cake. They are easily portable and they can be eaten with one hand. No plate or fork needed!


If we’re being honest with each other, the best part of carrot cake is the cream cheese frosting, right? It’s sweet and tangy, rich and creamy and So. Darn. Good. These cookies are the perfect vehicle for getting more cream cheese frosting into your life. And aren’t we all trying to increase our consumption of cream cheese frosting? 😉 This recipe is dangerously delicious. If you like carrot cake and cream cheese frosting you have to try these Carrot Cake Cookies!

  3. Beat butter and sugars for 1-2 minutes until light and creamy. Add egg and vanilla and beat to combine, scraping the bowl if necessary.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat on low until just combined. Add the oats, coconut, carrots and walnuts and mix until just combined.
