I didn’t know what to expect: cookies and a carrot cake or a cake that has carrot cookies inside? Well they served us quite simple cookies that were stuffed with peanut butter and sprinkled with powdered sugar. We were told that the cookies are otherwise filled with a cream cheese glaze, and they replaced it with peanut butter. Quite daring, isn’t it?
I tried them right away and was immediately thrilled. They were so brittle and tender, they had a sweet taste, there was a slight carrot taste and they just melted in your mouth. You probably know that I ordered another serving without thinking twice! Before I left the café, I asked for the recipe, and got it from the chef who was just honoured that someone was so excited about his simple cookies.
As soon as I returned home, of course, I tried to bake the carrot cookies myself. I wasn’t sure if they would work out so well for me, but the recipe the chef gave me was so simple, that the cookies were just perfect. I baked twice the amount cause I knew they will run out quickly!
