Truly enjoyed these cookies. And here is the but...replacing 1/2 of the butter with 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce did not change the perfection of these cookies other than the fat and cholesterol amounts.

These cookie were the best, since my family does like pumpkin, and this time of year that is most recipes. The sweet potato was a great idea. Not to sweet, just right.

These cookies turned out yummy although it didn't yield as many as the original recipe instead of raisins I used craisins and they turned out fine

It's nice to read a review that someone doesn't change the recipe..I hate it when people but in their own way if making it. Leave it alone, it's not your recipe.

My husband loves the sweet potato bread that I make every year around Christmas, so I decided to try these cookies. Yum!They are very moist and tasty and a great way to use sweet potatoes, especially if you grow them and have several on hand. I will definitely be making again.
