It’s officially starting to feel like Fall. Fashion Week is here (and almost over), and it is finally time to pull out sweaters and boots. One of my favorite parts about the changing season is the food. I love comfort food, and I really love fall desserts.
I know carrot cake is usually an Easter time dessert, but I find all the spices to be fitting for fall. I have decided to feature carrot cake cookies. These cookies are so good and much easier than making a cake. The cream cheese frosting is absolutely perfect. It the best recipe I have found by far.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Grate carrots and chop walnuts (optional)
Cream together butter and brown sugar. Add vanilla
Add egg, and blend well
Add flour, salt, baking soda, and spices. Mix until combined.
Stir in carrots and walnuts
Allow cookies to cool completely before frosting.
For frosting: Combine softened cream cheese and butter. Beat until light in fluffy. Add Vanilla
Add powdered sugar, and beat until well combined.
Frost cooled cookies and serve
