Oh wrong Food TV star, That's Bobby Flay. You see, no matter how hard I try a member of the opposite sex always has to enter my mind. Even Bobby Flay. So NOT the hotness of Tyler, but he might have some spice up his sleeve or in his pants, maybe , I'll have to ponder that next time I'm role playing with my FFH. KIDDING! Me, role play, no way. My FFH (firefighter husband for those who don't yet know my acronyms) and I never, ever go to bars(gasp!) and sit at different stools and pretend not to know each other, we never do that. No, we don't carry on that kind of show for people. Really. Never have we played the --who can expose more in a public store without getting caught game-- either. You people are sick. Did you notice more and store rhyme. So do truck, duck, luck, and 2 other words that are NOT related to this paragraph in any other way and they do NOT begin with f and s.
and chop it into short pieces, like soCombine it with some oatmeal, I use the quick cooking kindMix and set aside.In your mixer combine your butter, white and brown sugars,Beat them till light and fluffy. Then add your eggs and vanillaBeat these till well combined.
Now sift your flour into another bowlAnd then sift in your other ingredients.Stir to combine; add to your other mixture and stir in your oat/carrot mixture. And just look at that gorgeous cookie dough you've made.
Refrigerate your dough for a bit. (I've actually premade this and have refrigerated it for up to 3 days, aren't I the special one?)
Take your dough out, and using a scoop this size, yes, again, a Pampered Chef Item. I love Pampered Chef. Have you noticed I LOVE lots of things, food, cookbooks, Tyler, George, the hot guy from Grey's Anatomy, no not Patrick Dempsey, the other one, his best friend who cheated with Patrick Dempsey's TV wife at the time, romps in the hay, firefighter boots, running, .. God, I could go on and on, about what I love. I do hate things to you know. One of the things I hate the most is the cashier who sneezes , then hands you your change with the same hand she sneezed into. Oh, I could go on and on about what I hate too. But, I'll spare you for now.
OK, using your scoop, drop the dough onto parchment lined sheets, Try to get same size droppings.. haha.. so your sandwich cookies can be about the same size. Bake them for a bit, about 12-15 minutes. Take 'em out
and remove them to a wire rack to cool completely.
While you're cooling your cookies, make your sinfully delicious frosting! You will need
and some vanilla. Mix in your mixer till smooth, creamy, silky, and well blended.Can anyone tell me what is wrong with this picture?? Anyone? How in the freaking world, is this enough frosting to sandwich together 40 carrot cake cookies?? How! Martha, what are you thinking, domestic goddess? What are you thinking? Who wants a carrot cake cookie with an infinitely small amount of frosting holding the 2 together. NOT this woman, I'll tell you that much. I want to taste the frosting with each bite. I don't give a crap if it falls out the sides of my mouth or onto my hands when I bite into it. It needs a lot, it begs for a lot, it aches for it, Martha. Excess here, Martha domestic goddess, is a good thing, honey! Jeez. So my advice to you cyberpeople friends, is to double the frosting recipe. Just my 2 cents worth.
Proceeding, SLATHER, don,t delicately frost, SLATHER the cream cheese frosting onto a cookie,
then sandwich together with the other cookie.OH , yes, how good is that! VERY, I tell you. Not tooting a horn here or anything, but these are absolutely delicious and a favorite of many I make them for, including my mom.Can you all see my point here with the whole Martha domestic Goddess issue. She contends a thin amount of frosting is enough. I contend it is not, I like the DoubleStuff look. Come on, feel my pain here people, wouldnt you agree?? The one on the right is more tasty, maybe not as domestic goddess-y , but more girl next door-y , don't you think. Well, that's what you get when you visit me here, anyway. Girl next door-y ness, with a dash of odd.
Dip a few, eat a few, I won't tell. No one will know. Dip, eat, Dip eat, Dip eat. Like a Rhinestone Cowboy. Where'd that come from? Sugar high?You can have many of these a day, after all they have carrots and oats. Leads to good digestive qualities.
BEST stored in refrigerator.
