The Sweet Potato Cookie base is super fluffy, soft and loaded with great sweet potato flavor from Bruce’s Yams.
Their canned yams really make this recipe super easy to whip up. You just open the can, drain the syrup and mash them!
I topped my Sweet Potato Cookies with a super smooth and sweet cinnamon cream cheese frosting that is pure creamy deliciousness.
These are heavenly little cookies and I wish you could smell them through the screen! My whole house smelled like fall!
There are many pumpkin desserts that I like to swap sweet potatoes in place of the pumpkin.
To me, sweet potatoes have a milder flavor that lends itself to many more uses. For example, my Sweet Potato Bundt Cream Cheese Cake I make every year!
Plus, I always make sure and have a Sweet Potato Pie at Thanksgiving and it’s usually the first one to go!!
Bruce’s Yams are the number one selling canned sweet potato in the United States.
Their sweet potatoes use only the freshest sweet potatoes from nearby farms and are triple-peeled and canned within hours of harvesting.
My personal favorite thing about Bruce’s Yams is the simplicity of the ingredients and lack of names I can’t pronounce.
In a can of Bruce’s Yams Cut Sweet Potatoes, there are just 3 ingredients: Sweet Potatoes, Water and Sugar. Yup, that’s it!!
Bonus: Bruce’s Yams are certified by the American Heart Association!
These Sweet Potato Cookies with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting may sound hard to make, but I promise they are very easy.
The hardest part is the hour wait while the dough chills in the fridge!
The cookie dough itself uses melted butter and Bruce’s Yams to keep them moist.
Then we spice them up with cinnamon, nutmeg and a little vanilla extract.
These Sweet Potato Cookies are extra soft and rise up a lot into a perfectly rounded cookie as they bake.
Then we load on that Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting, right on top, in a big generous thick layer! It is the perfect topping!
