If I haven’t said that I love my job lately then let me say I love my job. It’s not just the fascinating people I get to interact with every day and a doctor who is like family.Another perk is that we get so many magazines at the office. The doctor’s mother subscribes to 10 or more magazines and we get them when she’s finished with them. I love it! I wait anxiously every month for all the new recipes. Now on to the best carrot cake cookie recipe I’ve ever eaten!

You’ll need:
1 stick unsalted butter melted plus 1/2 stick room temperature for frosting
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg yoke
1 cup flour I used whole wheat
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
3/4 cup finely grated carrots
1/4 cup golden raisins chopped, I didn’t chop mine, missed that part
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 ounces cream cheese
1 1/2 teaspoon jam, I used a homemade jam I had on hand

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl whisk both sugars and egg yoke together.
