I love cookies, cream cheese and pecans so I knew I had to make these cookies.
TIP: To save time buy a bag of shredded carrots and then give them a fine chop.
I like having all my ingredients on the counter and ready to go. That's how they do it on the cooking shows you know? LOL!
Doesn't those specks of freshly chopped carrots make that dough look pretty? YES, I know, I get a little excited about things like this!
Made myself a taco salad while baking my cookies. Anything with Sour cream is good!
The Recipe I had shows the cookies with nuts surrounding the sides and not the top, which was so pretty. But, I LOVE nuts and decided to top my cookies with nuts.
I made these for a family reunion and hid back a few for myself too! I made enough cookies that I boxed up some and gave to a friend for a birthday present.
I found the recipe on Pinterest. Here's the link http://www.twosisterscrafting.com/carrot-cake-cookies-cream-cheese-frosting/
Or you can pop over to my Pinterest page, select desserts, and I saved it there.
Okay, so how about a little fun today with a few questions.
1: What's your favorite meal of the day? Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner (we call it supper at my house)
2: What's your style most often when it comes to daily meals? Home cooked or Fast Food?
3: Are you one that likes to try new foods or are you more to staying with what you know?
4: Do you like to cook with different kinds of spices or are you more of just a salt and pepper kind of gal?
1: Well, through the week I would have to say lunch most often. I am not a breakfast person unless it's around 10:30-11:00 am. I am not a late evening meal eater either if I can help it. Sometimes I just can't help it either but if that's the case I never eat heavy. I would NEVER sleep a wink on a full stomach. Usually that is just the opposite for some people!
2: Home cooked. I usually eat fast food one day a week and sometimes two but only if I have no choice. I know that sounds weird but truth is I would rather eat my own cooking or what my man decided to grill.
3: I love trying new foods.
4: I LOVE cooking with spices and I LOVE trying out new spices.
I do hope that you all have a great week. I am already looking at this new recipe book I purchased using "Coke" in food and desserts. No telling what I might try next! LOL!
I will end with this today.
This week I challenge you to look around you no matter what your circumstances are and see the beauty of the Lord.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
