  • 12 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup greek vanilla yogurt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 packet unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup finely grated carrots
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts *optional


  • 2 sheets puff pastry dough


  • Reddi-wip® topping
  • Green licorice strings cut into 2” strips


  1. In a small bowl, add the water and gelatin. Allow to set for 1 minute.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle cream the cream cheese until smooth and no lumps remain. Add in the yogurt, brown sugar and vanilla. Mix to combine, scraping down the sides.
  3. Add in cinnamon, carrots, nutmeg, ginger and walnuts mixing just to combine.
  4. Take the bowl of gelatin and microwave for 20-30 seconds just until the gelatin dissolved. Do not boil.
  5. With the mixer running, slowly pour in the gelatin and mix until combined. Scrape down the sides and mix again just to combine.
  6. Put the mixture in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 4 hours.
  7. When ready to make the pastries, set the oven to 400F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, lightly sprayed.
  8. On a lightly floured board roll out each pastry sheet to a 12×12” square. Using a ruler, cut twelve 1” strips. Take each strip and roll each one up into a rope.
  9. Taking 12 cream horn molds, lightly spray them with cooking spray. Start wrapping the pastry around a mold from the tip of the cone towards the wide base, slightly overlapping. Do not stretch the dough tight as you want the dough to stay attached and overlapped when it bakes.
  10. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
  11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before removing the molds from the pastry carrots. Once the pastry is completely cooled, brush each one with orange food coloring.
  12. Place the carrot cake cheesecake mixture in a piping bag and pipe the mixture into each cooled cream horn shell.
  13. Spritz each top of the carrot with Reddi-Wip and then place 4 green licorice strings in the end to look like a real carrot.
