Sweet Potato Cookies

Sweet Potato COokies

I am so sneaky in my own mind! I think huh, if I add some produce to this dessert it will make it healthy and then I can happily eat some. There’s just a few problems with me looking at sweets I bake like this. The first one being, the addition of the fruit or in this case vegetable, while cutting some fat does not really make it healthy. Sadly that darn sugar and those carbs still get me. Secondly, the addition of produce in baking makes for very moist and yummy treats. So while I did cut some fat out of the recipe eating twice as much makes the dessert even worse for me. Luckily, these sweet potato cookies I made are for Thanksgiving and I will have a lot of people to share them with so that I do not succumb to eating them all on my own or even more likely, have to fight my husband for them.

I wanted to take everything that was good about sweet potato casserole and make it into a cookie. I wanted cinnamon, lots of dark brown sugar, fresh sweet potato and yes, even marshmallows! Oh my gosh did I nail it! If you love the casserole you are going to flip for these cookies. Every single bite tastes like you are nibbling on fall itself! Does that even make sense? If not you get the idea, right?
