Carrot Cake Cookies


It's almost March, it's almost spring, it's almost Easter.  Sorta.  I've got CARROTS on my brain, I've got carrots on my BRAIN, I've got carrots, carrots, CARROTS on my BRAIN!  

You see, I think I had a stroke there for a second.  I just sang a song about carrots, except for I didn't sing it, I wrote it down, so that you could sing it as you read it.  You don't understand how tired I am, people.  It's dangerous for me to be blogging, because I don't know what sort of sentence or song I will come up with next.  So for now, I'm just going to leave you with this recipe.  I loved this cookie.  It felt wonderfully unique and it was very easy to make.  Shortcuts, I'm all about them right now.  And making a cookie with a little help from a bag of cake mix is the best kind of shortcut.

Do you have to buy a carrot cake mix and where do you buy it?

Siri said...

Megan - yes, your regular grocery store should have it in the baking aisle by all the pre-packaged cake mixes. The major brands make it!

Linda - yes, they have been planted!
