Have your carrot cake in cookie form. It's a quick and easy way of making a cookie that tastes just as good as the cake.

1 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick/4 oz./113g) unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup coarsely grated carrots (2 medium)
1 scant cup walnuts (3 oz.), chopped
1/2 cup raisins (2 1/2 oz.)
8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup honey

Put oven racks in upper and lower thirds of oven and preheat oven to 375 degrees F/190 degrees C. Butter 2 baking sheets.

Whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.

Beat together butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla in a bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Mix in carrots, nuts, and raisins at low speed, then add flour mixture and beat until just combined.

Drop 1 1/2 tablespoons batter per cookie 2 inches apart on baking sheets and bake, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, until cookies are lightly browned and springy to the touch, 12 to 16 minutes total. Cool cookies on sheets on racks 1 minute, then transfer cookies to racks to cool completely.

While cookies are baking, blend cream cheese and honey in a food processor until smooth.

Sandwich flat sides of cookies together with a generous tablespoon of cream cheese filling in between.

Makes about 13 cookies.

These cookies are delicious! I brought some to work and my co-workers love them. Will be making some more for a picnic this weekend.
