Who doesn’t like carrot cake? These carrot cake cookies are just like carrot cake, soft and full of spiced flavors. Pecan adds the crunchy texture and nutty flavors, coupled with the tangy and rich cream cheese frosting over the top, and all the flavors perfectly melt and combine in your mouth. Make as much as you can cause it will never be enough for your family.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

Line the baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with baking spray.
step 3
Mix All-Purpose Flour (2 1/2 cups), Quick Cooking Oats (1 cup), Baking Soda (1 tsp), Ground Cinnamon (1/2 Tbsp), Ground Ginger (1/2 tsp), and Salt (1/2 tsp) in a mixing bowl, and whisk together.
step 4
In a large bowl, add Unsalted Butter (1 cup), Brown Sugar (3/4 cup), and Granulated Sugar (3/4 cup) using an electric hand mixer with medium speed to mix until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.

Add Eggs (2) one at a time and Vanilla Extract (1/2 Tbsp), then mix until well combined.
step 6
Stir in the dry mixture, and mix until just combined.
step 7
Stir in Carrots (1 1/2 cups) and Pecans (1 cup), and mix until combined.
