  • COOKIES:
    1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
    1 cup granulated white sugar
    1 large egg
    1 cup finely grated carrot
    2 cups Gold Medal® All-Purpose Flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    FROSTING:
    2 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
    2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons white chocolate chips, melted and stirred until smooth
    1/3 cup powdered sugar
    1 tablespoon (or more) milk, thinning out the mixture to desired thickness

  • 1. Make the cookies: In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter and sugar until semi-smooth. Mix in the egg. Stir in the carrot. In a separate bowl, use a whisk to combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until well combined. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least one hour (or overnight).

  • 3. Make the frosting: In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the cream cheese and butter. Mix until smooth. Mix in vanilla and melted chocolate. Mix in the powdered sugar, then add 1 tablespoon milk to thin out the mixture (add more milk or more powdered sugar, if needed). You want the frosting to be somewhat of a drizzling consistency (unless you'd prefer to spread the frosting on the cookies). Transfer the frosting to a zip baggie, cut a tiny hole in the corner of the baggies and squeeze the frosting into the corner to drizzle onto the cooled cookies. Let the frosting set.
