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!

Toby’s Prize

Sweet potato that Toby dug up in the garden

Toby had a special something

TOday that he found.

It was an orange tuber that was

Hiding in the ground.

He dug it up with his own paws

From its dark hiding place.

He showed it off to me and Mom

A huge grin on his face!


I wish I had the camera ready when Toby found this giant sweet potato (It was 9″-10″ long.)  .  I don’t think I have ever seen such a big smile on his puppy face.  This just reinforced to him that digging in the garden is great fun.

I am tempted to hide a few potatoes in the dirt and set him loose to find them.  If all goes well, the tilling should get done with very little effort on my part.

Come see what Bitey and Toby have been up to!  In Dream Our World, the boys view the world of art from a canine perspective and enjoy a day of unsupervised fun.

If you are wondering about Toby’s commentary on the Pollack picture, like most kids, he doesn’t appreciate abstract art.  He is saying, “Heck, I could do that!”
