Ingredients

Cookies:

1-1/2 cups old-fashioned oats

2 cups all-purpose flour

1-1/2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter OR margarine, softened

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract, pure

2 eggs

1-1/2 cups shredded carrots

Lemon Cream Cheese Filling

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup butter OR margarine, softened

1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel

Pinch salt

2 cups powdered sugar

1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice OR milk

Cooking
Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Pour oats into a food processor or blender and grind until they have a smooth texture.   Whisk together the oats, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.

Beat butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla in a large mixer bowl until creamy.  Add the eggs and beat well.  Gradually add the flour mixture until just blended.  Add carrots and mix just until combined; dough will be sticky.

Drop 1-inch balls of dough onto greased or parchment lined baking sheets.  Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until cookies are set and just browning around the edges.  Cool 5 minutes on baking sheets before removing cookies to wire rack to cool completely.

Beat all filling ingredients with electric mixer in large bowl, adding enough lemon juice to make a creamy consistency.  Spread filling over bottom of one cookie and then press another cookie, bottom-side down into filling.  Refrigerate cookies if not serving immediately.
