Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies
Cream Cheese Glaze (Optional)
To prepare cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.Advertisement
Whisk flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt together in a medium bowl.
Whisk brown sugar, butter, egg and vanilla together in a large bowl. Add the flour mixture, oats, carrots and raisins and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined. Drop level tablespoons of batter onto the prepared baking sheet, making 12 cookies per batch.
Bake until the cookies are golden brown on the bottom, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining batter.
To prepare cream cheese glaze: If desired, combine cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and 1 tablespoon milk in a mini food processor; process until smooth, adding up to 1 tablespoon more milk, if needed, to achieve a thick glaze consistency. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cookies.
To make ahead: Store unglazed cookies airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days; store glazed cookies in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
