Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.



I hope everyone is have a fantastic start to their weekends! I know we sure are around here. Although a bit cloudy today, we have had some spectacular weather. Temps have been in the mid 70s, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the holiday weekend. Things are finally starting to come together in our new house. We still have a TON of unpacking to do, and I feel like I just putting it all off! I think the main reason for this procrastination, is that I want all new stuff and don’t want to bring any of the old stuff up from the basement! I’m sure many of you know where I am coming from ;). Besides a little bit of painting, we plan on relaxing, cooking and drinking a lot of beer this weekend. I have one last Easter “hurrah” for you today in Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies. Because it’s just Zach and I here this weekend, I didn’t want to go all out and make a cake, so cookies were the next best thing. I love this recipe for a carrot cake bite-sized treat. They are a simple, quick cookie to make and they taste just like carrot cake! I know right! Who knew?! Have a great weekend everyone! I have some fun things in store next week, and I can’t wait to share them with you!







Beer Love:Beer: Odyssey Beerwerks’ Ghost Drifter Pale Ale
Brewed By: Odyssey Beerwerks
Style: American Pale Ale
ABV: 5.1%
Description: When I make sweet treats, I tend to pair them with robust porters, stouts or barley wines. I very rarely go the pale ale route, but with these carrot cake whoopie pies, I wanted to go in a different direction. Even though carrot cake (or carrot cake cookies for that matter) is anything but light, it has a freshness that can’t be compared to any other kind of cake (or cookie). I’m thinking it’s the carrots, but that’s just me. I really love a pale ale for this pairing, and that’s where Odyssey Beerwerks’ Ghost Drifter comes into play. This native to Colorado brew is a fantastic pale ale. I get some fruity notes (grapefruit mostly), but I mostly get hops, and a lot of them. It’s the perfect pale ale for these cookies. If you can’t get your hands on this particular pale ale, try any great session pale ale. I promise you, it totally works!

    1. It is SUCH a great contrast, which is the main reason I love it! Thank you so much! We are pretty much “moved” at this point, but I continue to procrastinate on the unpacking part. I’ll get there though. You are the sweetest. Thank you again, Allie!
