Ingredients for Cookies
- 1 package of Carrot Cake Mix (Betty Crocker has a great one but anyone will do)
- 1 Egg
- ½ cup butter (l stick softened)
- 1 cup shredded carrot
- 1/2 cup of raisins
- 3 table spoons of brown sugar.
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Combine carrot and 3 tablespoons brown sugar in a bowl; toss to coat. Place carrot mixture in a fine mesh sieve; let stand to drain for 10 minutes. If any liquid forms,discard it.
In large bowl, mix butter and egg then add cake mix and fold in carrot mixture and raisins until mixed well
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets .I used a small ice cream scoop.
Bake 11 to 14 minutes or until puffed and set in center. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
You can use canned frosting however here’s a recipe for an easy home made one that is soooo much better!
Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe
1/2 Cup of Butter Softened
8oz of Cream Cheese
4 Cups of confectioners’ sugar
1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
- Beat softened butter and cream cheese until well blended.
- Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until creamy.
Once you have frosting you can place in a pipping bag or like me put in a sandwich bag and cut a hole at the bottom and pipe into the bottom half of each cookie and sandwich them together. This is such an easy delicious treat.
Decadent and perfect for a special snack or to go with your afternoon coffee. Make a tray and take it to a special gathering. It’s so easy to make you can make ahead of time and just store in a sealed container for up to a few days.
