Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole
Everyone loved it!!! Decreased sugar to 1/4 cup, used Splenda brown sugar instead of white sugar, increased vanilla to 1 tsp, added 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1/4 tsp cloves.. On the topping used Splenda brown sugar. Also, used a casserole dish instead of a 9x13 pan. PERFECT!!!

Chocolate Mint Cookies I
This is my new favorite cookie!!! I tryed this recipe three different ways. First off, way to much work using Andes mints with the green wrapper. Way easier to buy the Andes mint chips, found next to the chocolate chips. All you do is sprinke a few chips on the top of the baked cookie, wait one mintue then spread with a knife or the back of a teaspoon. I also tryed mixing the chips into the batter. Very good but not as good as melting the chips on top. I also mixed white chocolate chips into the batter. Again, good but over kill. Does not need the additional chips in the batter. Last, I tryed 60% dark chocolate chips instead of the semisweet. WAY BETTER!!!! Love the rich darkness!!! These cookies taste like Girl Scout Thin Mints...YOU WILL LOVE THEM!!! Forgot, try them cold or frozen...TOO DIE FOR!!!
