Carrot Cake Cookies

Carrot cake cookies with homemade cream cheese frosting : ) Soft, so flavorful and not overly sweet.

I added a small amount of chopped walnuts to the dough. Perfect amount of sugar & spice! The cookie is soft with a cake like texture. A new favorite + I’ll always be team carrot cake. This recipe is a keeper! πŸ§‘πŸ˜ƒπŸ₯•

Stay healthy & safe! #bakersgonnabake
