"Carrot Cake Cookies are soft and chewy, flavorful carrot cake cookies made with a cake mix! Topped with a creamy cheesecake frosting, these carrot cake cookies are perfect for Easter! I’ve used boxes of cake mix to make cookies in the past, but I think these new Carrot Cake Cookies are a new favorite! They were so easy to whip up and they had the perfect carrot cake flavor I was looking for. I topped them with a homemade cream cheese frosting and sprinkled them with festive Easter sprinkles. So fun!"


Preparation Time10 min

Cooking Time10 min


  • 1 box carrot cake mix (15.25 oz)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Combine the cake mix, eggs and butter into a medium sized bowl. Mix thoroughly. The dough will be very thick and sticky.

  3. Add in the raisins and walnuts and mix again. Let dough sit for 5-10 minutes.

  4. Use a cookie scoop to create uniform balls of dough. You can then roll the dough in your hands after scooping to smooth all of the edges, or just place the cookie dough ball on the pan and gently pat down any edges.

  5. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

  6. To make cream cheese frosting, whip butter and cream cheese together using an electric mixer. Add in powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract.

  7. Once fully cooled, frosting with cream cheese icing and add sprinkles, if desired. Store in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
