If you, like us, are convinced that the sweet potato casserole Great-Aunt Sally serves every Thanksgiving is more of a dessert than a side dish, then these sweet potato sugar cookies with marshmallow topping are for you.
“This is like the cookie version of that sweet potato casserole with toasted marshmallows on top,” recipe developer Erin McDowell tells us. “It’s a very cakey cookie that has no egg in it—the sweet potato does the work that the egg would normally do. So it ends up being this really moist, very soft cookie.”
“When the structure is set but the cookie’s not quite done,” McDowell continues, “you put the marshmallow on top and it melts over the whole thing in the oven. Because it’s a jumbo marshmallow, it stays chewy, so you get this nice pull effect when you break one in half.”
They’re so good, we’re skipping the side dish. Until next year, sweet potato casserole.
