Tips and Tricks for Crumbl Carrot Cake Cookies:

 

  • You can also eat these yummy cookies without the cream cheese frosting, but we love frosting too much at our house to leave it off.
  • Garnish with pecans or walnuts if you like. 
  • Crumbl Carrot Cake Cookies also freeze very well for up to 3 months. 
  • If your cookies have an outer edge that looks rough, just take a glass the size of the cookie and place over the top of the cookie, trimming off the rough edges.
  • Make sure to dry your carrots by removing as much water as possible after they are grated.

Ingredients

Cookies:

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 egg yolks, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup finely grated carrots
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • chopped pecans (optional)

Instructions

Prepare Carrots:

  1. Shred your carrots with a box grater or shredding attachment on a food processor. Then, add them to a food processor fitted with an "S" blade. Pulse until they are very fine bits. Measure out ½ cup (75 g) of carrot bits.
  2. Dry your carrots. (This may seem weird but it is the only way these cookies will bake properly and not turn out cakey!) Spread your carrot bits on a plate and place a paper towel over the top. Lightly press to absorb the liquid. Repeat the step at least four more times until hardly any liquid transfers to a paper towel. (It needs to reduce down to just about ⅓ cup (45 g) from ½ cup (75 g). Set aside.

Cookies:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl cream the butter and brown sugar together with an electric mixer on high speed until pale in color and fluffy, 2-3 mins.
  3. Add in the egg yolks and vanilla and mix on medium speed then medium-high speed until pale and fluffy; about 1-2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  4. Add in the dried carrot bits and combine on low speed just until combined.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, and salt.
  6. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix on low, then medium speed until combined.
  7. Scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, using a medium sized cookie scoop, about 2 tablespoon of dough per scoop. Scoop 6 cookie dough balls per baking sheet. (You should be able to get 18 cookies.)
  8. Bake the cookies for 11-13 minutes. (12 minutes is usually perfect.) Let them cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling. (When the cookies are straight out of the oven, scoot a circular cookie cutter around their edges to give them a perfect circular shape.)

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  1. Add the butter and the cream cheese into a medium mixing bowl, and mix together for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Next add in the confectioners sugar and the vanilla extract, and mix until the mixture is well combined and your frosting is nice and smooth; about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Spread some frosting on each cookie, and garnish with chopped pecans or sprinkles if desired.
