Serves about 30 cookies | Prep Time | Cook Time

Ingredients

1 and ½ sticks of unsalted butter, room temp.
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 cup + 2 TB cooked & mashed sweet potato
1 and ½ cups of mildly sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ts baking powder
¼ ts cinnamon
¾ ts salt
¾ cup old fashioned oats (or quick cooking)
¾ cup milk chocolate chips
1 and ½ cups pecans
1 cup raisins


In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt, whisk a bit; place to the side.


In another separate bowl combine the oats, raisins, pecans and chocolate chips, mix well.


In a big bowl, cream the butter and both sugars together. Add eggs, then the sweet potatoes, and then the cheddar cheese, combine. Then fold in the dry ingredients; then pecan, raisins and oat mixture.


Don’t over mix, just fold in.


Drop by tablespoon size onto a non stick cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. These cookies do rise a bit. You could shape them into smaller sizes if you want.


Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Or until a light golden brown around the edges.
