I had carrot cake cookies today with phili cream cheese dressing in the middle. Like an oreo.

Just the right amount of flavour of each. Sometimes in carrot cake you get too much icing or none. Don't have a recipe. It was from a coffee shop.

7. Buttercream frosting is rare these days. I've eaten cake from the grocery store but

without the real buttercream it ain't the same. And what really is the point of cake if you don't like the icing.

8. I made those cookies once.

Great flavor, but a pain to make. I'm an experienced baker but they wore me out.

10. My cookies were cake-like.

As I recall, there were tedious waiting times between steps where the cookies had to be cooled and refrigerated before frosting/filling them. Even chilled, the filling was difficult to spread without breaking the cookies. The taste was sublime but the cookies were more like a cake sandwich.

12. My first thought when I read your OP

was that I hope the bakery makes them again some day. They probably have a much more convenient recipe; I took mine from BonAppetit. Hope you can get another one!

13. I doubt they will give me the recipe. But i will drop by again soon and hope

it is a regular thing. They were cakey. But not a thick slab of cake. Like 2 small muffintops really with the icing in between.

14. Those sound exactly like the ones I made.

Your description of muffin tops is the best way to describe them. I think the recipe was from 2004 (I made them in mid-'04) but the recipe may have been published slightly before that if you want to search Epicurious for the recipe. Good luck!
