Frosted Carrot Cake Cookies Recipe

These Frosted Carrot Cake Cookies are so simple, and delicious. They make a perfect Easter snack or dessert, that your whole family is sure to love.


Happy Easter.

I hope that you are having a wonderful and relaxing Sunday. Today we are getting together with all the sisters and their families for family dinner and an Easter egg hunt.

It will be anything but relaxing, but that’s how we roll.

We only have a couple more weeks of being together because Kristen and her family will soon be moving to Indiana and Steph and her husband are headed to California.

We have felt so blessed to have been lucky enough to all be in Utah for the last two years, so having these sisters be far away will be hard.

So, what do I do when I am feeling sad? I eat my feelings. And these carrot cake cookies are perfect for that. Soft, chewy, and covered in cream cheese frosting. They definitely help.

These are perfect for spring, but honestly, I’d eat them all year long.

what other frosting could I make if i don’t like cream cheese?

Cream cheese is my love language. If it has cream cheese in it, I need to eat it. However, I know it is not for everyone, which is totally understandable.

If you are in need of a different frosting recipe, we highly recommend making our Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. It is so delicious, and just as easy to make, if not easier.

We put it on just about everything, and these cookies will still taste absolutely amazing with a little buttercream frosting instead of cream cheese, on them.

  1. I live in Indiana, but both of my sisters now live in different states (Virginia and New York). It's very difficult being separated from them (especially because that means I am also separated from all five of my niece/nephews), but thank goodness for Skype, texting, smartphones, and email...we keep in touch all the time! Although we were separated by many miles today, I feel like we spent Easter together considering all of the pictures and videos we shared! :)
