This doctored Carrot Cake Mix makes the best-tasting carrot cookies super fast and easy just make them with a few ingredients with a delicious fluffy homemade cream cheese frosting.

Carrot cake mix, eggs, cinnamon, and oil are just some of the ingredients in this recipe with some suggestive additions below, the cookies are off-the-charts delicious.

Topped with cream cheese frosting will add the perfect sweetness and we love to make these around Easter time.

If you want something easy to make to take to a dinner party or even one you're hosting, these cookies are a sure hit every time and quick to make.

Soft moist cookies and we love adding a few chopped raisins, coconut, and nuts to the batter for an all-around carrot cake-style cookie.
