Carrot Cake Cookie Sandwich

Ready for Monday's pinch of sweet treat pixie dust? :)

Today we're heading to one of my favorite spots at Hollywood Studios...

The Writer's Stop!  (That green chair tucked back there is one of the coziest spaces in the park.  I sit back surrounded by books and pretend I'm in Belle's library!)

The green chair is a lovely spot, but - most sadly - the loveliest seating of all is no more...

The wonderful window counter seating is gone, replaced with an incredibly lame condiment station.  I LOVED that window so much - it felt like the quintessential writer's spot.  You could sit and watch the passers-by and collect stories.

It's been gone for many months now (since March at least).  Maybe they'll get feedback and bring the window seating back...

ANYway, on to more cheerful items!  Like the pastry selection!  Everything at the Writer's Stop looks so tasty...the muffins, the cookies, the cinnamon rolls.  One of their signature items is the:

CARROT CAKE COOKIE.  A little pricey at $3.95, but it would be great for a snack credit!

The carrot cake cookie is made of two round pieces of carrot cake with some absolutely delicious cream cheese frosting in the middle.

I am a big fan of carrot cake so I was excited to try this.  To be honest, I was a little thrown by the whole cake cookie sandwich -- it was mushy where I expected it to be crunchy.

The icing was lovely, and the cake was tasty - until you got to the raisins.

I'm not a raisin person.  My thinking is: don't ruin a perfectly good dessert with nuts or raisins.  IMO, the only acceptable dessert filling is chocolate chips.

What do you think?  Would you go for the carrot cake cookie?  Are you Team Raisin or Team Chocolate Chip??


  1. I still haven't had a chance to try one of these yet! I finally got to try a Butterfinger cupcake last week, so the Carrot Cake cookie is on the list for next time!

  2. Love these. I'm ambivalent about raisins, in fact, I don't really notice them in these. They must be golden raisins instead of dark ones. I'm with you on the chocolate chips though!!
