Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies
Prep/cook time: 1 hour, 5 minutes
What we thought: The question I posed to my 2-year-old was a dangerous one: Is it a little bit good or a lot good?
He paused and looked at me. A lot good.
It’s not often I agree with him when it comes to food, but the Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies are a lot good. I had expected them to be overly sweet because the recipe calls for a cup of brown sugar, but they were just right. The cookie is buttery, moist and flavorful, and I especially loved the texture the raisins and walnuts provided.
For the icing, I went with whipped cream cheese frosting from a can to give the cookie sandwich some lightness. I would prefer homemade, but when cooking time is at a premium on a holiday, the convenience is appreciated.
