Carrot cake cookies – just like a cake but in a soft, sweet cookie with a touch of spices and packed with grated carrots sandwiched with cream cheese frosting
Carrot cake cookies with cream cheese frosting. There’s something about carrot cake and Easter. For the last couple of weeks I see a carrot cake recipes almost everywhere I turn, not to mention all the sweet chocolate or fondant carrots just waiting to be placed in an Easter basket for little hands to grab.
This year we’re having friends coming over for Easter. In fact, not just for Easter but for 8 days. I’m so excited! Just as excited as finding the limited edition of white chocolate carrot cake M&M’s! Have you seen them in your area? Don’t feel bad! They are not in my area either. I’m already thinking of writing a complain letter to M&M’s.
To get my hands on some of these M&M’s I had to ask one of my mommy friends to drive almost 2 hours to get me a couple of bags. Crazy right? Not really! I had bought them myself a couple of weeks ago but by the time I got around baking with them we had eaten the entire bag.
I love when my friends come to the rescue. That’s why I make them cookies.
Carrot cake cookies with Easter M&M’s and cream cheese frosting. If you live near a Wal-mart that carries these M&M’s you really should grab a bag or two and make some cookies!
These cookies are packed with finely shredded carrot to keep them moist, with a touch of spice from cinnamon and nutmeg. The brown sugar gives them a little chewiness, and the M&M’s gives them a new meaning of carrot cake cookies.
If you do not have M&M’s, you can still make these cookies, no need to be upset right now. You can add some nuts or raisins or if you like your carrot cake with pineapple I’m pretty sure you could do that too, just keep an eye on the amount of the liquid in pineapple, you’ll probably have to add just a little more flour.
Sending love your way,
