Sweet Potato Cookie Recipe

This is not my recipe. I found it on the internet and have no idea where.

Sweet Potato Cookies

2 1/4 cup flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1 cup butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup sweet potato puree

1 egg

2 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped

Mix dry ingredients. Cream butter, potato, sugar and egg. Mix with dry ingredients, then add pecans. Scoop 1” balls. Bake 400 degrees for 10 min until set. Can be glazed.

I have to use alternative ingredients, so my cookies are brown rice flour with coconut oil and very little sugar. To me, they remind me of Snickerdoodles in that they have a mild flavor and a medium texture (not hard, not soft). If you wanted to get adventurous and put mini chocolate chips in them, that would probably be good too!

If you try them, you’ll have to let me know how they turn out. 😊


If you try them, send me some. Dogs like Christmas cookies too!
