Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a bowl, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Stir in the lemon zest, honey, nutmeg and egg until well blended, then mix in the sweet potato. Stir in the flour using a large spoon until just blended in. Form tablespoons of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake for 7 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are starting to brown lightly. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

This is by far the strangest cookie I have ever made. It has almost a cake-like texture; VERY soft and fluffy, and the flavor of the nutmeg comes out beautifully (I also added a teaspoon of vanilla extract) with a perfect hint of sweet potato goodness. Fresh out of the oven, it didn't seem to have too much flavor although the texture was lovely. I waited for it to set for a while and about four hours later, it was perfect. I've eaten five already, and made a batch of thirty. By their quality, I'd say they'll be gone the second my apartmentmates wake up tomorrow ;^_^ Unexpectedly excellent recipe: Bravo!

These cookies are absolutely delicious - very light and extremely moist. I am a health nut so I tweaked the recipe a little bit - I used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup canola oil in place of the butter. I also added 1 teasp. of vanilla extract. And I ended up baking the cookies for about 10 minutes. I would definitely make this recipe again - the lemon zest added a nice kick. I baked them last night, left them overnight to cool, and tried them this morning - absolutely delicious and healthier than many other cookie recipes!

What an unexpected treat. I tried this recipe for fun but it is really good. I used a bit more sugar than the recipe and added vanilla (1 tsp. They have a wonderful texture. I made the first batch plain and added a simple glaze on top. The second batch I pushed a mini marchmallow in the middle and topped with a bit of brown sugar like a mini sweet potato casserole. They looked really cute and were a great thanksgiving warm up.
