Carrot Cake Cookie Sandwiches

carrot cake cookieLots of Easter menu planning is going on over here and I typically love to have a traditional coconuty carrot cake on my table, but this year I have opted for something even better! I have a thing for cookies lately, I just think they are so easy and everyone loves them and eats them.  Sometimes I find when you have cake, no one wants to wait for the cake to be cut, so they don’t eat dessert.  So this year I have created the perfect combination of the simplicity of a cookie with your favorite carrot cake flavors.  I also felt I could make it even better….Pineapple Cream Cheese Filling!  Carrot cake cookie sandwiches will be a great addition to you Easter celebration…or any celebration for that matter!
