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.

Not bad,but I substituted the potato with fresh bay scallops.

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 ...

Add a 1/2 cup raisins and 1/4 cup pecans and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar!

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 cookie...

Belatedly realized after i made it.. why should be baking soda? Baking soda makes the cookies more like muffin than cookies. Just add 2 tbs of palm sugar, vanilla essens and don't add baking sod...
