These cookies were awesome...I don't know what the other raters did to make them taste so bad but I did exactly what the recipe said and they came out really good...They weren't too much like cookies more like little fluffy breads but I sandwiched two with cream cheese and it was soooo yummmy!

This would make a better muffin than a cookie. Add 1/4 cup of applesauce to sweeten it up a bit. Read More

My rating for this recipe would be "0" stars if possible. I will have to agree with Sheila; there is something missing in this recipe. "Taste" There is none. Read More

Definitely more of a muffin texture. Not cookie-like at all. I searched out this recipe because I had a LOT of leftover cooked sweet potatoes. They lack in sweetness and adding raisins was a big help but when finished I also felt they needed something. The cream cheese icing recommended would have been great but I made a powdered sugar glaze that also brought up the sweetness level. My husband declared them quite delicious so there you go!

I goofed and melted the butter not being much of a cook I didn't realize that softened butter and melted aren't the same thing. It was a good mistake to make. They made wonderful muffin cookies! Everyone loved them. Also as I cannot eat wheat I subbed Bob's Red Mill Wheat and Gluten Free Flour and had great results. Read More
