Makes about 3 dozen

Here’s what you will need:
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1 cup grated carrots (about 3 medium carrots)
1 cup pecans, finely chopped

Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups confectioner’s sugar

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Beat at medium speed until creamy, scraping the bowl when necessary. Then beat in the eggs, orange zest, and vanilla.

Next, mix in flour. Then, stir in the oats, carrots, and pecans until just combined.

Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons on to a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 13-15 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet; then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

In the meantime, prepare the frosting. Begin by beating together butter, cream cheese, salt, and vanilla until smooth. Then, add the confectioner’s sugar one cup at a time, beating in between, until smooth and creamy.

Once the cookies are cooled, frost with about 1-2 tablespoons of frosting.
