I never said I wasn’t susceptible to suggestion. Case in point, these carrot cake cookie sandwiches, which were inspired by the side of the Duncan Hines cake mix box.
1 package Duncan Hines carrot cake mix
1/2 cup unsalted butter brought to room temperature
1 cup oats
cream cheese frosting (dyed orange, just for shits and giggles)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Soak packet of carrots and raisins according to cake mix box instructions.
In a large bowl, beat butter and eggs until creamy using a hand-held mixer.
In a separate bowl, combine cake mix, oats, and raisin-carrot mixture.
Gradually combine dry ingredients with creamed butter and eggs.
Drop heaping tablespoonfuls approximately 1.5 inches apart on cookie sheets.
Bake for 13-15 minutes until lightly brown.
Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of frosting on underside of one cookie; top with underside of another cookie to form sandwich.
