Here is a yummy fall cookie recipe. Carrot Cake Cookies. I love, love, love carrot cake! The sweet cream cheese frosting, spice cake, carrots, nuff said. Oh, and I especially love the wonderful aroma that fills the kitchen when baking it. What a perfect way to kickstart the fall season.
Box of carrot cake mix
Cream cheese frosting
Half a cup of melted butter
Two tblspns of vegetable oil
Preheat the oven to 350F
In a large bowl mix the cake mix with two eggs, melted butter and oil…
You can use a handmixer or Kitchen-aid mixer. I used a heavy-duty mixing spoon, and it worked just fine…
After mixed, the cookie/cake mix should have a doughy consistency. Use a cookie scoop if you have one to make even-sized cookies. I have a cookie scoop that makes one-inch rounds. Place the dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper…
Bake the cookies for ten minutes. After the cookies are done baking, place the cookies onto a cooling rack.
Let the cookies cool for 15 to 20 minutes, then frost with cream cheese frosting…
These cookies turned out so moist and delicious and were quick and easy to make. A nice shortcut for that carrot cake craving.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my post! Happy Fall from PeopleTreats!
Those look really good and I love Mr. Cookie on the park bench! You are making it impossible for me to keep on my diet!!!
Isn’t the Mr. Cookie so cute 🙂 Should have taken a bite first, lol, give him a little character. I’ve been baking way too many sweets, need to do more savory dishes. Sweets just tend to be easier to come up with, I guess.
Diet, smiet!! Whatcha talking about?! You look good 🙂
These look sooooooooooo yummy!
Oh, they really are yummy!! :)! Perfect treat for the fall season!
Instead of carrot do you think pumpkin or squash could be used? I have quite a few of those.
Oh, I’m sure pumpkin or squash can be used. Just make the cookies from scratch, though, as opposed to a box cake mix. Bake the pumpkin or squash in the oven to make the purée, then use the purée for the cookie mix. Here is a link for a pumpkin cookie recipe…http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/iced-pumpkin-cookies-recipe/index.html. I may have to give this recipe a try. Also, I made a pumpkin roll last year for Thanksgiving, hmmm, mm, so good! A really great dessert. I highly recommend.
