For Easter, I made a recipe for Carrot Cake Cookie Sandwiches. I loved the idea of cookies and cream cheese icing combined, so I wanted to make another recipe like that. Red velvet cake and cream cheese icing are two things that I feel go together like peas and carrots, so they were an obvious choice for me.

Carrot Cake Cookie and Cream Cheese Icing Sandwiches
I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a great Easter dessert to share with you guys. Of course carrot cake was what I kept thinking about, and I absolutely love carrot cake, but I feel like there are already so many amazing carrot cake recipes out there. I was inspired to do something different. I had the idea to do carrot cake cookies, and I worked on a recipe for those. I was ready to roll with that, but then I started to realize that one of the best parts of carrot cake, for me, is the cream cheese icing. Don’t get me wrong, these cookies are delicious on their own, but I just felt like I would miss that icing. Then I decided, why not have the cookies AND the icing?
