These Carrot Cake Cookies with Cream Cheese Filling should come with a warning. Seriously. While these are baking get to your computer immediately and print out a giant label to place next to these cookies. You can choose your own words, but the gist should be Under No Circumstances Will You Be Able to Eat Just One of These Cookies. Any variation of this message will be fine, but you really won’t be able to stop with just one.
If carrot cake is your thing, these cookies will be right up your alley. They’re everything we love about carrot cake, but in cookie form.
My daughter loves baking cookies and I love the fact that this recipe actually contains a vegetable. I know it’s still a cookie but it seems far less decadent knowing that those bits of shredded carrot are in there. They bake up like tiny cakes, moist and delicious with a classic cream cheese frosting in the center.
