1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup packed, finely grated carrots
1/3 cup raisins


For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
In a bowl, combine cream cheese, softened butter, and vanilla.
Beat the mixture until smooth and creamy.
Gradually add powdered sugar and continue to beat until well combined.

For the Cookies:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Mix until well combined.
Add the egg yolk and mix thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour and kosher salt. Gradually add this mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined.
Fold in rolled oats, grated carrots, and raisins until evenly distributed.
Drop rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each cookie.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


Once the cookies are completely cooled, spread a generous layer of cream cheese frosting on the flat side of one cookie.
Top with another cookie to create a sandwich.
Repeat with the remaining cookies.
Enjoy your Carrot Cake Cookies! These little delights are a perfect way to enjoy the classic flavors of carrot cake in a portable and shareable form.
