    These are incredible! Love them! I took somone else's idea and used muffin top tins. I double the recipe and added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and filled the batter to the top of each tin. Once they were cooled completely I cut them in half with a bread knife. It was easy spreading the cream cheese filling after that. They came out super moist. I baked it @ 350 for 12-14 minutes. doubling the recipe still only made 11 cakes because of the size of the tin. So good!

    So good, what's not to like? One small change, used flaked coconut instead of shredded as it incorporated better AND...I purchased muffin top pans 2 years ago, much easier than suggested method & use for many things. Found at Bed, Bath & Beyond & used their coupons. I have 2 pans & just spray with Pam for baking or other baking spray. Simple! Cuts baking time WAY down so watch carefully!

    These are called Whoopie Pies everywhere else, and they are delicious!

    I have made these cookies numerous times, they are FABULOUS!! I have changed the recipe a little towards my liking...more cinnamon, orange zest, orange juice, more coconut, walnuts, a little extra vanilla...they are easy and definitely a crowd pleaser!!!

    My boyfriend and family loved these! They are the perfect amount of cake and a great way to change up the taditional carrot cake. They do spread so using a muffin top pan is the best way to bake them in my opinion. Will be making these over a over again!

    Made these to take camping and they didn't make it to the second day's lunch even though I tripled the recipe. I used unsweetened shredded coconut but chopped it more finely in the food processor. I was thrilled to find a recipe that didn't include nuts since my granddaughter is severely allergic to nuts but I like the "crunch" that nuts give.

    I would love to try making these, but what can I substitute the cream cheese with? I can't tolerate dairy...any suggestions?

    These cookie/cakes were simple to make, delicious and very cute! I love that they are portable too. I wanted to utilize my abundance of fresh CSA carrots and it was a perfect solution. I doubled the recipe and it came out fine. I am reviewing them on my blog with photos. Check it out at!
