It’s FRIDAY. And we are celebrating with Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies. It’s been a hectic two weeks around here, getting back from an amazing time in New York City and planning out all the fun stuff we have going on for you guys this Spring, but we’re happy to be back home and settling back into our routine. Which obviously should include Carrot Cake Whoopie pies…especially with Easter mere days away!

Carrot cake has always been one of my favorite desserts. My mom makes the most AMAZING carrot cake in the world for me on my birthday every year, and that combination of flavors is an all time favorite of mine. Turns out the Easter Bunny likes it too.

And we can’t blame him.

Perfect for Easter or any time!Sometimes making a layer cake can feel like so much work though. You feel me? Like first you have to make the cake (and we all know that homemade cakes aren’t exactly a breeze). Then you have to let it cool, make the frosting, etc. And there’s something about putting all your eggs in one basket that stresses me out, because if you mess up that one cake….you’re done for.

That’s why I love whoopie pies or sandwich cookies. You’ve got a little more time to figure it out. And if you mess up one (or three), well it’s not the end of the world.

We just adapted our usual carrot cake recipe and then filled these bad boys up with our favorite cream cheese frosting. The cookies themselves are fluffy, perfectly spiced pillows. Pipe some cream cheese frosting and sandwich them together and everyone will be happy this Spring!

How to make the best cream cheese frosting?

Cream cheese frosting can be a tricky one to get just right, but we’ve done all the testing to get that perfect ratio for a frosting that’s just tangy enough, sweet, but not too sweet, and so fluffy and creamy, you’ll want to lick the bowl clean. We use 1 stick of butter, 4 ounces of cream cheese, and 3 cups of powdered sugar, and we know we’re biased…but it’s pretty amazing.

Instructions

for the cookies

  1. Preheat the oven to 350¬įF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.¬† In a large mixing bowl with a paddle attachment beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about two minutes. Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.

for the frosting

  1. To make the frosting, place the butter and cream cheese in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment. Whip the butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract, salt, and powdered sugar and whip to combine, about 2 minutes more.
  2. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag or plastic bag and snip off the end to make a large hole. Pipe a thick layer of frosting on one cookie and place one on top to sandwich together. Repeat with the remaining cookies.

I’ve had your mom’s carrot cake, so I cannot wait to make this recipe this weekend! What do you think about using almond or cococut flour to make these gluten free?

We’ve never tried these with almond or coconut flour! I’d probably recommend a cup for cup gluten free blend just to keep it easier on you adapting it ūüôā

I made these and they were super yummy! It was really easy to make. Just saying that oven temperatures vary, so I baked mine for 12 mins. and they were almost overdone. Love the recipe!
