Sweet Potato Raisin Pecan Cookies
This cookie has Thanksgiving written all over it. Its a mash up between pecan pie and sweet potato pie.
Of course, if we’re talking about thanksgiving pies, I would prefer mine to be covered in chocolate.
Now that my brain is thinking about chocolate, I bet swapping the raisins out for chocolate chips would be phenomenal in this recipe. I’ll have to remember that for next time.
Since sweet potatoes are naturally sweet, I have a hard time convincing my body to eat them for dinner. So, save them for dessert and pow – sweet potato raisin pecan cookies are created.
As I was making this recipe and now preparing this post, I’ve caught myself saying “pee-can” instead of “pick-ahn”. Oh goodness, I move ‘south’ (aka – further south than Minnesota) and now I am a southern belle or something.
A doctoral student did some research on the different dialects of “pecan” – what do you say?
Ha, kind of silly.
Look at all of those healthy ingredients – these could easily become breakfast cookies, right?!
