If you love carrot cake you will absolutely love these Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting! It's not all about pumpkin for fall baking! #fallbaking #falldesserts #thanksgivingdesserts #carrotcake #cinnamoncreamcheesefrosting #easydessert #partydessert

I know it's "pumpkin season" when it comes to baking, cooking, smoothies, hot drinks, and everything else you could possibly think of. Not for me though. It's not that I have anything against pumpkins, but if I'm going to eat something orange, I prefer carrots. Oh how I love carrots, just as long as they are not baby carrots. I like to clean and peel my carrots myself. 

I was browsing through my Southern Living Home Cooking Basics cookbook and came across a Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookie recipe that sounded delish. I added cinnamon to the cream cheese frosting because I love the combination of carrot cake and cinnamon and decided that these were more Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies because the "cookie" part turned out much too soft. These definitely have the consistency of whoopie pies and with the cinnamon cream cheese frosting in the middle, they definitely look like whoopie pies.

Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies

  • 3/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 2 Tbsp. firmly packed brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1 package (16.5 oz) refrigerated cookie dough

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 5 oz softened cream cheese

Preheat oven to 350°

Step #1 Stir together carrot, brown sugar, ginger, and cinnamon. Then stir in raisins.

Step #2 Break cookie dough into little pieces and stir into carrots. I found it easier to mix with my hands. 

Step #3 Roll tablespoonfuls of the cookie dough into balls and place onto a lightly greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.

Step #4 Bake at 350° for about 18 minutes or until the edges are crispy. 

Step #5 Cool on baking sheet about 5 minutes. If you remove them too soon, the whoopie pies might break. Cool completely after the 5 minutes on a wire rack.

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Step #1 Mix together all ingredients except cinnamon. 

Step #2 Once all ingredients are thoroughly mixed, add the cinnamon and mix well. 

Step #3 Chill for about 20 minutes until it's spreading consistency. 

Final Step Spread cinnamon cream cheese frosting on the bottom of one carrot cake whoopie pie spreading the frosting all the way to the edges. Lightly press another whoopie pie against the frosting and enjoy!
