      This recipe was awesome!!! I did not use raisins instead I fold in a half cup of pecans. They taste great they were more of a cake texture than a cookie texture. Just like other viewers I will try them with brown sugar next time. I also drizzled a homemade cream cheese coconut icing on top, so good my daughter, cousin & husband loved it. I didn't wait to roll them out scooped them rite away & baked. This is a keeper. Thanks.

      I preschool my daughter and a friend at home and we made these for this months baking project. I used whole wheat flour, pumpkin instead of sweet potato and substituted half the butter with applesauce. Next time I will use brown sugar instead of white, but we really enjoyed these fluffy cookies! Thanks for posting
