This is a new blog event for me. It's a Cookie Carnival that Kate from The Clean Plate Club hosts. A cookie recipe is distributed monthly amongst participating bloggers, then they bake and tell all about it for the round up. Sounds fun, and guarantees cookies each month! Check out the February round-up here.
This month's recipe Inside - Out Carrot Cake Cookies couldn't be something more fitting could it? See, this month is my Husband's (the BIG 4 0! Shh!) birthday, and I usually bake a German Chocolate cake or carrot cake for him as those are his favorite. But I have decided to make him the German Chocolate cake, and make these to have now. We're celebrating another Birthday next month, so I'll do a carrot cake for that. Anyways...

We thought these were great. Perfect little bite sizes of cake! For the filling, I added in some pecans and whirled it all in the food processor. I kept these stored in a covered container, and they sure turned sticky after each day, but still yummy!
(TIP: use a cookie scoop for uniform sized cookies)
