Let me start off by saying...these are addictive!!!

You get a bite of brown sugar carrot puree and cheesecake all at once...

If you've ever gone to a Chinese restaurant and had those sweetened cream cheese rangoon - you will love these!

The cheesecake and carrot worked really well together. It's a very unexpected combination.
