· 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature

· 1/2 cup packed Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar

· 1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar

· 2 large eggs

Cream Cheese Filling

Instructions
· Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside. 

· In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt. Set aside. 

· In a large stand mixer, combine butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add in eggs and vanilla extract, beating until well combined. 

· Add flour mixture to mixing bowl, and beat on low until just combined. 

· Fold in carrots, coconut and walnuts, by hand. 

· Transfer batter to a frosting bag fitted with a round tip. Squeeze out rounded portions of batter, about two inches in diameter, onto one of the prepared baking sheets. Leave about two inches in between whoopie pies for spreading. 

· Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until tops feel set when you tap them lightly with your finger. Edges will be lightly browned. 

· Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on baking sheets before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. 

· To make the cream cheese filling, use a large bowl and beat together cream cheese, butter, vanilla and salt until well combined. Add powdered sugar in two batches and beat until smooth.
