Carrot Cake Scones

Carrot Cake Scones
A Sprinkle of This and That recipe


1 cup of carrot cake mix from a box

1 cup flour

1/2 cup milk

4 Tbsp butter

1 can cream cheese frosting

orange food coloring (3 red, 2 yellow drops)

green food coloring


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix carrot cake mix, flour, milk and melted butter just until combined. 

Shape dough into a ball.  Use a little extra flour if needed.  Place ball shaped dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Cut the dough into 8 pie shaped pieces.  Separate on cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.  Divide prepared cream cheese frosting in half.  Add orange food coloring to half of the frosting and green food coloring to the other half.  Stir each color separately until desired color is achieved.  Use a piping bag to create a zigzag pattern on the "carrot" part and green lines at the top to create the top of the carrot.
