One of our favorite cakes turns into easy-to-eat bars. Don’t skimp on the cream cheese frosting!

Ingredients

1
package Pillsbury™ Big Deluxe™ refrigerated oatmeal raisin cookies
1
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2
cups finely shredded carrots
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon, if desired
1
egg
3/4
cup chopped walnuts
1 1/2
cups cream cheese frosting

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Line 8-inch square pan with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2 Remove cookie dough from package; let stand at room temperature about 5 minutes.
  • 3 In large bowl of stand mixer with paddle attachment, break up cookie dough. Add cream cheese; beat on low speed until blended. Add carrots, cinnamon and egg; stir to combine. Fold in walnuts. Spoon mixture into pan; spread evenly.
  • 4 Bake 27 to 29 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Do not overbake or bars will become dry. Remove from oven; cool in pan on cooling rack about 45 minutes.
  • 5 Spread cream cheese frosting over cooled bars. Cut into 4 rows by 3 rows or 4 rows by 4 rows.
Tips  

It’s very important that both the cream cheese and the cookie dough to be at room temperature. I suggest the cream cheese to be left out at least 30 minutes before using it.

For a festive look, add some colorful candy sprinkles to the top of the bars.
