  • 150 g carrots
  • 100 g butter
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 50 g sugar
  • 1 egg (size M)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 190 g wheat flour
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ginger
  • ¼ tsp cardamom
  • 1 pinch mace
  • 1 pinch clove powder
  • 80 g walnuts
  • 100 g tender oat flakes


  • 100 g butter
  • 100 g powdered sugar
  • 1 TSP. vanilla extract
  • 175 g cream cheese


  • 3 TBSP. chopped walnuts
  • Some cinnamon for dusting


  • For the dough, wash, peel and finely grate carrots. Beat butter, brown sugar and sugar until creamy, mix in egg and vanilla extract. Sift flour, baking soda and spices over the butter-sugar mixture and mix in together with the grated carrots. Finally, chop the walnuts and stir into the dough with the oat flakes.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees top/bottom heat. Line a baking tray with baking paper. With the help of an ice cream scoop, place the dough in 15 even portions with some space between them on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten the dough slightly with your hands. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes until golden brown. Then allow to cool completely.
  • For the frosting, beat soft butter in a mixing bowl, sift confectioners' sugar and add by tablespoonfuls to the butter. Add vanilla extract and beat until creamy white. Place cream cheese in a small bowl and stir in three tablespoons of the butter-sugar mixture to blend it into the cream cheese. Return cream cheese mixture to butter-sugar mixture and stir in briefly.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon frosting on each cookie and smooth. For decoration, sprinkle the cookies with chopped walnuts and dust with cinnamon. The Carrot Cake Cookies will keep in the refrigerator for at least 3 days.
