  • Summary

    You can have your cake and eat it, too--as a cookie! The bases for these thumbprints are studded with grated carrots, chopped pecans, golden raisins, and rolled oats. The creamy filling features fresh goat cheese (cream cheese would work in its place) and a swirl of apricot jam. The result? Layers of flavor in every bite.
