Recipe Ingredients for inside out carrot cake cookies

2 1/2 cup carrots, finely grated
1 cup white flour, enriched
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup raisins
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup margarine, non hydogonated, reduced calorie
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 eggs, large
15 ounce chick peas, rinsed and drained
14 ounce pineapple,chunks in juice, drained
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp cardamom
4 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
1/8 cup honey

Recipe Directions for inside out carrot cake cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350.

  2. Drain and rinse garbanzo beans, drain pineapple and puree together.

  3. Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs one at a time, then the puree and vanilla.

  4. Mix flour, oats, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, cardamom, and cinnamon together

  5. Add dry ingredients to wet slowly.

  6. Stir in carrots and add raisins.

  7. Using rounded spoonfuls drop onto parchment or greased cookie sheet and bake for 20 min. (You might want to use a glass to flatten them out a bit since they don't seem to spread out, depending on how much surface area you want to frost.) Let cool a bit on the cookie sheet before transfering them to a cooling rack.

  8. While cookies are cooling mix the creamcheese and honey till smooth (sometimes I will add a little bit of the pineapple juice from the canned pineapple for fun)

  9. Once cookies are cool, frost the bottom of one and stick it to the bottom of another...voila samiches.

  10. I get about 100 (50 sandwiches)cookies from this recipe and tend to have frosting left over.
