I’d like to check in and see how your winter layer is coming along. Short days, cold weather, holidays – fancy excuses to put on the winter layer. Truth: 80% of this season’s layer is attributed to cookies, where cheese is to blame for the other 20%. Dairy, dairy, dairy, how delightfully cozy you are. If you’re enjoying your cookie layer as much as I, here’s a little goodie for you which can easily be construed as breakfast or snack. Or dinner if you’re a bachelor/bachelorette.
I found this recipe from Lemons and Lavender for sweet potato cookies and Lori describes them as being more like muffin tops or whoppie pies than cookies. Muffin top treats to add to my cookie layer? Don’t mind if I do!! I halved the recipe, added a little, subtracted a little and out popped what I would call a delicious treat that should find a safe happy home on your counter all winter long.
