Carrot cake is a favorite in our household that was previously reserved for special occasions worthy of 3 layer pretty cakes. But I recently stumbled upon a picture of a "carrot cake cookie" and thought it was worth a shot. I was a bit nervous that if I left my recipe as is (to maintain its delicious flavor and texture), and just baked them as cookies, I'd get a very flat cookie. And, I did indeed come out with a flat cookie, no matter how small I made them, but that turned out to be ok.
These cookies may not win any awards for beauty - but they sure make up for that in taste. And the flatness of the cookie means you finally get the perfect ratio of frosting to cake in every bite! Carrot cake is now welcomed into the world of every day finger food recipes in our house.
