52 Weeks of Cookies: Week 29
I found this recipe on Show Me The Yummy
The only thing I changed in this recipe was that I didn't use a Duncan Hines cake mix... instead I used a generic store brand because it was cheaper... and also I didn't think the kind would matter. BUT, maybe it kind of does because I didn't have a separate package of carrots and raisins... my carrot bits were already mixed into the cake mix.
My opinion? WAY TOO MUCH ICING! I just really don't know what people are thinking when they put more icing than cookie on these things. It could also be a problem that the icing is cream cheese which isn't exactly my favourite. I also find there to be way too many flavours going on in my mouth when I eat these. There is coconut, cream cheese, white chocolate chips, and everything that goes along with that carrot cake mix. It's just a lot to take in.
So, I'm going to give these a 5/10. They aren't terrible... and at least they don't taste like medicine BUT... I don't think I'll choose to make these again.

Last week I made some Snickerdoodles for the first time ever. If you have a hankering for some mini doughnuts these are a great idea!
