If you’ve been to Disney World you’re familiar with Sweet Spells on Sunset Blvd in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The carrot cake cookies they serve there have been called visitors’ number one favorite cookie in the entire park. They’re just that good! It was pretty obvious for me that I wanted to create my version of these popular cookies to go along with this round up of 18 copycat recipes from Disneyland.

The cookies from the Disneyland establishment have a cake like texture to them, which is why I wanted to make mine with a cake mix. Yes, this recipe is made super easy by using a carrot cake mix! It’s a beautiful thing.

This recipe makes two dozen individual cookies before sandwiching them together, making one dozen Carrot Cake Cookies. I used a cookie scoop to create the cookie shapes and they weren’t perfect, let me tell you. But they don’t have to be perfect to make these little sandwiches. I set all of my cookies out and then matched the like shapes together to make even cookies.

Place a can’s worth of cream cheese frosting into a gallon-sized ziploc bag and cut one of the corners off to create a whole about 1/2-3/4 of an inch wide. Then pipe frosting right around the outside edge of the bottom of one of the cookies. Repeat on 11 more cookies.
