Great tasting cookies that are easy and fun to make - plus they differ from the cliche chocolate chip cookies. You will be surprised at how delicious and moist these are.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 egg
- 1 cup grated raw sweet potato
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.
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.
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.
