Oatmeal Carrot Whoopie Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting | theendlessmeal.com

Do you remember that moist carrot cake with cream cheese frosting I shared with you a while back? These oatmeal carrot whoopie cookies are basically that cake, in cookie form.

Must. Go. Eat. Another …

The only word of warning I have for you is to make them smaller than you see in the pictures here. It's a lot of cookie, and even one is pretty filling.

Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 ½ cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup carrot, finely shredded
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup walnuts, toasted and chopped

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • ¾ cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until very creamy, about 2 minutes.
    1 cup butter, ¾ cup brown sugar, ½ cup white sugar, 2 large eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg.
    1 ½ cups flour, 1 ½ teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon sea salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ½ teaspoon allspice, ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat until just combined. Stir in oats, carrots, raisins, and walnuts.
    2 ½ cups rolled oats, ½ cup carrot, ¼ cup raisins, ¼ cup walnuts
  • Drop by heaping tablespoons onto an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the cookies are just starting to get brown along the edges.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring the cookies to a cookie sheet to cool completely.
  • For the frosting, beat the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Once the cookies are completely cool spread the frosting onto the bottom half of half the cookies. Top each with the remaining half of the cookies.
    ¾ cup cream cheese, 2 tablespoons butter, ¾ cup powdered sugar

Notes

*It is best to assemble these cookies within a few hours of the time you are going to eat them. If you are going to make them ahead of time store the frosting in the fridge and the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. Take the frosting out of the fridge 10 minutes before you assemble the cookies to let it soften slightly.
