Ingredients

  • 1 and ½ sticks of unsalted butter, room temp.
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 and ½ cups of mildly sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup old fashioned oats (or quick cooking)
  • ¾ cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 and ½ cups pecans

Directions

  • 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.
