Cookies from Carrot Cake:

These carrot cake cookies are easy to make, but I like to make sure I set aside enough time to allow all my batches to bake in a timely manner. I do not like feeling rushed in the kitchen.

This recipe makes about 2 dozen carrot cake cookies and each batch needs approximately 8-12 minutes to bake, so plan accordingly.

I love spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking. And, I love getting my boys involved as well. It’s a great way to put down our smartphones and tablets, and spend some quality family time together!

Tips for making Delicious Carrot Cake Cookies:

While you are gathering all your spices and other ingredients, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Also, take a few minutes to line your cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set up your cooling racks.

It is super helpful to have all your mixing bowls ready to go. I even like to measure out the spices separately into a small mixing bowl and then add the flour, baking powder, and salt to another separate mixing bowl.

These carrot cookies are moist and full of flavor so even the pickiest eaters will like them. I always encourage friends to try these cookies, even if they don’t love carrot cake. The combination of all the spices, pineapple, shredded carrot, and other ingredients make them perfect for Easter dessert.
