My son's literature class is reading a novel that takes place in Africa and he had to bring something made with yams for a presentation. We wanted to do something different so made these cookies, but with yams instead of sweet potatoes. These were a huge hit!! My son asked to make another batch for home- they were very moist! We did make a few minor changes: we added 3 T of splenda brown sugar sub., as well as 1 t. of vanilla, 1 t. of cinnamon, and increased the lemon zest to 2 t. We made them bigger, yielding 24 cookies instead of 36, so baked them at 325 for about 10 minutes. When they were done, we topped each with a small dollop of lemon cream cheese frosting as another poster suggested. Either the kids all loved them because they really were very good, or they were just so relieved not to see another whipped yam and marshmallow casserole-I'm not sure which!
