Serves: 9

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!! Mine was very busy as usual! I wanted to visit my sister, but with lots to catch up on from the week, plus an exam I didn’t get the chance! But you can be sure next weekend I will be seeing her! Can we also discuss how the weather forecast here in RI says snow on Tuesday!! WHAT!? Already? I can not even believe it! We haven’t even hit Thanksgiving yet! It’s a good thing I dug out the winter gloves and scarves this weekend!

Today’s recipe came about from a very intense craving I had one day for sweet potatoes, raisins and cookies….yes, all at the same time! haha I can’t complain though because that craving turned into this delicious recipe! I hope you enjoy! Have a great Monday! 🙂

These cookies are soft, chewy and loaded with delicious cinnamon flavor! The raisins gave them a delicious sweetness as did the sweet potato! These didn’t even make it out the door for anyone else to enjoy! 😉

  • I hope there’s no snow in our forecast ;) it is meant to be coming into Spring here in Australia but the cold weather has been hanging on. Today it is meant to rain and be windy and cold, I am counting down for warm weather. Those cookies look delicious!! My favourite cookies would have to be classic chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven.
