Comfort Food Mash-Ups, Remixed: Cheesecake + Carrot Cake

Surfing the wave of mash-up mania that brought the world the Cronut™ and Ramen Burger, we decided to beat the winter by partnering with our brilliant culinary team in order to come up with THE most-indulgent comfort food. Together with Food Network, we’ve mashed up some classic comfort foods in unique — and dare we say, mind-blowing — ways. Over the next several weeks, we’ll be revealing the ways we mixed and remixed some of our favorite dishes, with one recipe appearing on Cooking Channel and the other on Food Network.

In this second installment, we’re taking on two desserts that might not seem like natural — until you realize their shared reliance on cream cheese. Carrot cakes are best when smeared with a crown of cream cheese icing as thick as the cake itself, while cheesecakes are, well, made out of sweetened cream cheese. To tango with these tangy desserts, we had to get a bit creative.

While Food Network combined cheesecake and carrot cake into one fused, layered cake, Cooking Channel decided to create something altogether new to marry the flavors. These Carrot-Cheesecake Whoopie Pies redefine the trendy sandwich treats, which traditionally are filled with a layer of light, frothy whipped cream. In this adaptation, the pecan-studded, orange-flecked sandwich halves possess that savory-sweet carrot-cake flavor and a much denser texture than usual, perfect for standing up to the zesty cheesecake filling. These sweet beauties are best when served cold, so keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to double your cream-cheesy pleasure.

What would you call this pairing? Would you give the dishes a different name on each site? Tell us in the comments below, on Facebook or on Twitter.
