    realbirdlady's Note:

    Nothing flashy, just a nice, comfortable, milk and cookies experience, with a bit of nutrition slipped in. These are wonderful just out of the oven, and also freeze well. Based on the recipe for Kumara Cookies, from Kaipara Kumara,

      I did not know what to expect from these except they sounded very cool and healthier than the regular cookies that are made. So made a huge batch for DH to take to hunting camp. He called to say they were gone within 30 minutes and the guys would like more. I made them smaller than indicted by the 12 stated as I got 18 med. size cookies. They were soft on the inside and chewy when cooled. DELICIOUS! This is in my cookbook and will make again especially after Thanksgiving if there are any leftover sweet potatoes. I did make exra batches without combining but will try that next time so that I can make a few doz at one time. VERY GOOD! adopted PAC 2007
