    Recipe Introduction

    Honorable Mention - Contest Recipe 2009! Mmm! Bite into cookies that remind you of eating carrot cake smothered in cream cheese frosting. They're made easily from a cookie mix.

    1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty CrockerŽ oatmeal cookie mix
    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    1/2 cup grated carrots
    1 tablespoon water
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 egg
    4 oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
    1 tablespoon butter or margarine, softened
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    1/4 cup finely chopped nuts, if desired

    1. Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie ingredients until stiff dough forms.
    2. On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart.
    3. Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
    4. In small bowl, mix cream cheese, 1 tablespoon butter, the vanilla and powdered sugar with spoon until smooth. Spread frosting over cookies. Sprinkle with nuts. Store tightly covered in refrigerator.
