We're having a friend for dinner this evening ("Dr. Lecter? Hello? Hello?" hee hee), so I've pre-made dessert: inside out carrot cake cookies! The recipe is from the In Praise of Leftovers food blog, an adaptation of an Epicurious recipe from a few years ago.
I followed Sarah's instructions pretty exactly, except that I skipped the candied ginger and went back to walnuts instead of pecans. The cream cheese frosting with cardamom and honey is insanely delicious--I was so enthused as I spread it on that I somehow ended up running out of frosting for two of the remaining cookies. Oh, well, they'll be good with ice cream, too.
