Sweet Potato cookies with semolina and honey

Posted by

Sweet potato cookies with semolina and honey are slightly moist and perfectly sweet treats to kick start the baking season. Sweet potato and a little chocolate can create magic. These are not crumbly like regular cookies but are soft and somewhat grainy for the semolina. Sweet potato lends a beautiful color to these cookies.

I prefer to add fruit or vegetables into my muffins, bread, cakes, etc. Now sweet potatoes are naturally sweet, so an excellent choice for baking. It is almost a staple in my kitchen. Soups, fries, and mash made with sweet potato is a hit in my family. I boiled the sweet potato cubes and then mashed with butter to get a creamy texture, but roasting or steam cooking them will work great. 

I love these cookies for their texture, and I am making them again with a twist or two.
