These are so delicious for the holidays. With Sweet Potato and winter spices they are so yummy! My 2 year old son and I recently took a trip to Telluride, CO. I was inspired to make these yummy, gooey, crumbly Sweet Potato cookies. Butter, sugar, sweet potatoes and chocolate. What could be better!!
about 24 cookies
Unsalted Butter, Softened
Pure Maple Syrup
Brown Sugar (You can also sweeten with all Maple Syrup or all brown Sugar)
Unbleached A/P Flour (or 1 Cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and 1 Cup Unbleached A/P Flour)
Preheat oven to 350?F, lightly grease baking sheets.
Combine Butter, Egg, Maple Syrup, Brown Sugar, Vanilla, in medium bowl. I mixed the ingredients with a spatula, you can also mix with electric mixer until well blended.
In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients: Flour, Salt, Baking Soda, Pumpkin Pie Spice.
Stir 1/2 the flour mixture into the wet ingredients, stir in remaining flour mix until well combined. Stir in Sweet Potatoes and Chocolate Chips.
Heap large tablespoons of batter onto cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart.
Bake for about 15-18 minutes, until cooked thorough and tops of cookies are golden. (At 10,000 feet in Telluride these cookies took quite a bit longer to cook through, about 19-20 minutes. Use your judgement and taste preference to determine baking time.)
Let cool about 5 minutes and place on cooling racks.
Dust with powdered sugar.
