Cookie of the Week: EASY Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies with Orange Sugar and Cream Cheese Frosting

{ReMarkableHome.net} Cookie of the Week every Monday

The other day I had to make a treat for Cub Scout pack meeting.  I didn’t want to go to the store to get ingredients, so I went to the pantry to figure out what I could make from the ingredients I had on hand that would be easy and yummy.  I saw a carrot cake mix and thought, “Carrot Cake cookies would be festive!”  I grabbed the cake mix and after referring to a cook book on how to make cake mix cookies I whipped these up.  I happened to have some leftover orange sugar in the fridge from when I made the Orange Poppyseed Snickerdoodles. I thought that carrot cake cookies rolled in orange sugar sounded even yummier.  Then I remembered some green cream cheese frosting I had in the pantry from Christmas time that we got for FREE from the grocery store!  I decided to sandwich the frosting between two cookies to make them extra fun.  I really didn’t expect them to be all that great as I’m not a huge fan of cake mix cookies but actually they were delicious!  They seemed to be a big hit with the Cub Scouts as well.  So, I thought I would share them for the Cookie of the Week. {recipe after the break}

EASY Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies with Orange Sugar and Cream Cheese Frosting

Yield: 18 sandwiches


  • 1 carrot cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup orange sugar (in food processor mix together sugar and 1 teaspoon orange zest, or just use plain sugar)
  • 1 jar cream cheese frosting (or homemade would be delicious)


Preheat oven to 350.  With an electric mixer, combine cake mix, softened butter, eggs, and vanilla.  If dough seems to dry, add water 1 teaspoon of water at a time until the dough comes together well. Take tablespoons of dough and roll in orange sugar.  I use a 1 ounce cookie scoop and then divide each scoop in half.  Press the dough balls down slightly onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until edges are set and light golden brown.  Allow cookies to cool completely before spreading frosting on one cookie bottom and placing another cookie on top.
