Chewy Carrot Cake Cookies with warm spices, freshly grated carrots, a hint of vanilla and rich butter. Topped with classic cream cheese frosting made with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Make for Easter and springtime holidays.
*Cookie dough can be made without a mixer and stirred by hand.
**Carrots can be drained with a dishtowel or by squeezing between clean hands. Reserve liquid for later, if needed.
***Melted and cooled butter refers to butter that is melted and slightly cooled. It should read between 85-95 degrees F.
******If mixture is too clumpy and dry, fold in a tablespoon at a time of carrot juice. Alternatively, if mixture is too wet, fold in a tablespoon of flour at a time.
NOTE - If cookies come out flat, bake for less time or add more flour!
