Course Dessert
Servings 14 sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour can be whole wheat or all purpose
  • 1/2 cup quick rolled oats
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 8 Tbsp. unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup grated carrots (use microplane or cheese grater)
  • optional: 1/4 cup raisins, 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup powdered sugar for rolling cookies in prior to baking
  • 1 gallon Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In a stand mixer or in a bowl using a hand held beater, beat softened butter, brown sugar and white sugar/ Beat until light and fluffy - about 2 minutes. Add in the eggs and vanilla until incorporated. Slowly add in the flour mixture and stir just until incorporated. Lastly fold in the carrots and any other optional ingredients (nuts, raisins).
  • Roll into ball (you may need a little flour on hands to prevent from sticking). Roll ball generously in the powdered sugar and then place on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. 
  • Cool cookies completely and then take a scoop of the softened ice cream and sandwich between 2 cookies to make your cookie sandwich.
  • Repeat with all cookies and then FREEZE for 30 min. (or eat immediately because you can't resist!).
