12 Days of Sharing Virtual Cookie Swap – Sweet Potato Oatmeal Cookies with Orange Icing

Post image for 12 Days of Sharing Virtual Cookie Swap – Sweet Potato Oatmeal Cookies with Orange Icing

For many years now, a close friend and I have shared the tradition of giving for Christmas. We usually donate to a non-profit that helps to feed children and families that are in need of food. We then share the information about that agency in our Christmas cards to each other.

Doesn’t it feel great to give and share, especially this time of year? Doesn’t it also feel great when you show and share love via food? Well, you can do both in the Share Our Strength 12 Days of Sharing fundraising campaign and virtual cookie swap hosted by In Jennie’s Kitchen.

Here’s how you can help:
1. Donate any amount (really anything) and/or
2. Submit an entry to the virtual cookie jar and post about this campaign.

Another unique feature to this campaign is that other bloggers serve as co-hosts (today I am co-hosting) to help spread the awareness to all of our readers. And if simply giving by posting or by donating isn’t enough, there are great prizes!

My cookie recipe came about back in October when I could not find a can of Pumpkin Puree anywhere so I decided to make some sweet potato puree and utilize it to make cookies. These really are more of a moist cake type cookie and are not really sweet enough for my family until I add the glaze.

Sweet Potato Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients: 18 cookies
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1.5 teaspoons cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup 1% milk
1 whole egg
6 oz cup non-fat plain yogurt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 sweet potato puree, cooked until tender, peeled and pureed (1 lg. sweet potato)
optional: 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. Peel the sweet potato and chop into small chunks. Place into a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 6-8 minutes (until you can easily pierce with fork). Set aside to cool slightly.
3. Meanwhile, combine the following into a bowl: flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, oats and the (optional) flax seeds.
4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, yogurt and sugar.
5. Place the sweet potato into a food processor with 1/3 cup of milk and puree. Add the remaining milk as needed while pureeing . Fold 1 cup of the puree into the ‘wet’ mixture.
6. Add the dry mixture into the wet mixture and combine well.
7. Place tablespoons of the mixture about 2 inches apart and bake for approximately 8-9 minutes.
Icing: (a rough recipe as I did not write it down)
1-2 cups confectioner’s sugar
Orange Juice
Water
Place sugar into a bowl; add 1 tablespoons of orange juice and mix. For more moisture, add water, a teaspoon at a time and mix well. Drizzle over cookies and allow to set. Consume and smile.
