Carrot Cake Cookie (Disney's Hollywood Studios)

Recreate the famous
Carrot Cake Cookie (Sandwich)
Disney's Hollywood Studios
with this easy recipe!

*makes 4 jumbo cookie sandwiches

Cookie Ingredients:

1 carrot cake mix
2 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Cookie Directions:

Preheat oven to 350º.

Pour cake mix into a large mixing bowl. Add in the eggs and oil. Whisk until you have a thick batter. Using a standard-size ice cream scoop, scoop mounds of dough onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Add only 4 mounds of dough per cookie sheet to allow room for spreading.

Place a piece of wax paper over the mound. Set a wide-bottomed glass (or Mason jar) on top of the wax paper and rock it back and forth to flatten the dough. (Watch the video below to see how this is done.) Quickly peel off the wax paper.

After all the mounds of dough have been flattened, place the cookies in the oven and bake at 350º for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Make the cream cheese filling (recipe below).

Turn half of the cooled cookies over so the flat side is facing up.

Squeeze a swirl of the cream cheese frosting on top of the upside-down cookie. Start from the outside and work your way in toward the middle.

Set another cookie on top of the frosting (flat side down) to create a sandwich. Press down gently.

Serve with a cold glass of milk or dunk in a cup of hot coffee. Enjoy!


Cream Cheese Filling Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 (8 oz) brick cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups powdered sugar

Cream Cheese Filling Directions:

Place butter and cream cheese in mixing bowl. Add vanilla. Blend with an electric mixer on medium-high until creamy. Add in powdered sugar, one cup at a time, blending well after each cup has been added.

Spoon filling into a cake decorating bag fitted with a Wilton 1M star tip - OR - spoon into a gallon-size baggie with one corner cut off to make a homemade cake decorating bag. Follow directions above to fill cookies.
