Preparation

Step 1

Toss together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir raisins into carrot mixture.

Tear cookie dough into pieces, and stir into carrot mixture until well combined.

Drop cookie dough mixture by tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto lightly greased baking sheets. Dough should make 24 cookies.

Bake at 350°F for 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are crisp. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks, and cool 10 minutes or until completely cool.

Turn half of cookies over, bottom sides up. Spread each with 1 tablespoon chilled Cream Cheese Icing. Top with remaining cookies, bottom sides down, and press gently to spread filling to edges of cookies.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Pillsbury Create 'n Bake Sugar refrigerated cookie dough.

To switch it up a bit, you could also add crushed pineapple to the icing centers. These cookies would also be good if you used cinnamon raisin cookie dough.
