Cookie Carnival: Inside-Out Carrot Cake Cookies


Hello fellow cookie lovers! The Cookie Carnival gang has another great cookie to share with the blogosphere this month - Inside-Out Carrot Cake Cookies, from the April 2004 issue of Gourmet magazine.

It's no surprise that I loved these cookies. After all, carrot cake is my all-time favorite cake.

We were supposed to make larger cookies and sandwich the cream cheese filling between them. Since I was taking these to a get-together, I needed more cookies than the recipe calls for. So instead, I made them smaller and topped them with cream cheese icing.

I did take a few of them, cut them in half and make a sort of half-sandwich cookie. Turns out, I liked them better as sandwich cookies.


If you're interested in these spicy delights, you can find the recipe at Epicurious.com or click ---> here.

Thanks to our host, Kate, from the Clean Plate Club for once again picking a fantastic cookie. If you'd like to join us Carnivalers, please let Kate know.

I've made the cookies and they are still sitting in my freezer, waiting to be filled. Maybe tomorrow. I've had them before and I know I liked them. Nice job!

These were really delicious! I like the idea of making smaller ones, and even frosting each cookie = more icing!
