Semi-homemade Carrot Cake Cookies filled with cream cheese chips and topped with the cutest royal icing characters. They’re a super easy alternative to actual carrot cake and make the perfect addition to an Easter buffet.
You can adapt this recipe with almost any cake mix and any fillings!
I refrigerate it so that it doesn’t spread when baking
For me, it looks much better when the characters are added to the dough before baking…it looks more “seamless”
If you can’t find cream cheese chips, use white chocolate!
I made these as cookie sandwiches before and filled them with cream cheese frosting…SO GOOD
