Frosted carrot cake cookie with a bite taken out.

Carrot Cake Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

These soft carrot cake cookies are super delicious (and so easy!), but that divine whipped cream cheese frosting is quite literally the icing on the cake (er, cookie)! Yum!

Life is funny.

You can be skating along minding your own business and one day out of the blue be faced with a reality that you didn’t even know was coming.

For me, that was the day when I realized I absolutely, totally needed carrot cake cookies to exist. Like, RIGHT NOW.

I hadn’t ever really even thought about them. Until I did. And then I couldn’t stop thinking about them.

I know I already have some beloved carrot cake recipes hiding away in the archives. And they’re great. Perfect. All I need when I want carrot cake.

But they don’t fill the carrot cake COOKIE void.
