Drumrolll please.....Carrot Cake Cookies finally in test phase

Okay, so maybe it's not that big of a deal but for years now it's been on the back of my mind to add a carrot cake stuffed cookie onto the menu.  However it wasn't until I had the most amazing dinner of my life at Truclucks in La Jolla that I was finally convicted to start the R&D process. (The constant nagging of the crazy sweet tooth of my husband helped too).  After a huge dinner of crab cakes, oysters, crab legs, bacon mac & cheese, garlic mashed potatoes and the best risotto we've ever had.... (yea I know....what? we like food!! :) I thought I couldn't add a single nibble of food into my incredibly stuffed belly.  That was of course until I saw the 10ft carrot cake being presented to me on  the dessert tray.  We just couldn't resist.  This 7 layer carrot cake, with just the perfect combination of cream cheese and cake drizzled with a butterscotch glaze and topped with candied pecans was a dessert you just didn't say no too! It demanded at least a bite....or two....or twenty! We devoured the ENTIRE thing!!  Really? Cause we don't eat enough sweets as it is! But it got me thinking I would totally come back just for this cake.  What if I had a cookie that just demanded to be eaten? Wouldn't you try it at least once? Stay tuned for how it turns out!
