Sweet potato oaty spice cookies

Posted by Picasa

I made these cookies from BakingBites.com a little white ago. Head on over there for the recipe. I am always on the lookout for interesting-looking cookie recipes, and this one certainly fit the bill, as it incorporated many ingredients that I wouldn't have thought of putting together.

I actually made no changes at all to the recipe, but somehow I still felt that something extra was needed. I'm not sure what. You might want to experiment with it yourself.

I have been searching for the perfect oatmeal cookie. I have yet to find it, but these were pretty good. As were these. Not quite sure if ANZAC biscuits fit into this category, but they are good too.

What about you? Do you have a favourite recipe for oatmeal cookies?
