Easy and Delicious Purple Yam (Ube) Cookies

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"A simple recipe for purple yam cookies. These taste awesome! They're very soft and cake-like in texture. These are dome-shaped once they bake. You can flatten them as desired. This is a flexible recipe. You can add a teaspoon (or more) of baking soda instead of baking powder if you want a thinner cookie. I think you can top these with some white chocolate chips after baking."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease lightly.
  2. Mix sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla extract, salt, baking powder, purple yam powder, and flour, in this order, in a large bowl until dough is well blended. Drop tablespoons of dough onto the baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies look firm, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool for at least 5 minutes before gently transferring to a wire rack.


  • Cook's Note:
  • To test your batter, drop a tablespoon of the batter into a microwaveable mug and add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water and mix until it resembles cake batter. Microwave for a minute or two until cooked.
