Ingredients

  • 1 box carrot cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil

For the frosting:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese or neufchatel softened
  • 4 tablespoons butter half stick, softened
  • 1 & 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silpat. Beat together the cake mix, eggs, and oil. The batter will be stiff.
  • Take rounded teaspoons of the dough, roll into balls, and place on cookie sheets. Press them down with your palm or the bottom of a glass so they are a little flattened.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to set up on the pan for a couple minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • While the cookies are baking, beat together the cream cheese and butter. Add in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
  • To assemble, spread about a tablespoon of frosting on half the cookies, then top with the remaining cookies. Store in a sealed container in the fridge. Unless you are planning on eating all of them right away. Don’t worry. No one is judging you.
