{January 16, 2010}   Sweet Potato Pie Cookies

I mentioned in my last post that I had extra pie filling left over.  It was not quite enough to make a second pie, and I did not want it to go to waste.  So I experimented a little and made them into cookies.  They turned out a little more chewy than I would have liked but were overall pretty yummy.


Leftover sweet potato pie filling

~ 1 cup of flour (I used about 1/4 whole wheat and the rest all-purpose flour)

3/4 cup rolled oats (from Earth Fare‘s bulk section)

3/4 cup chocolate chips, organic (from Earth Fare’s bulk section)


  1. Pre heat oven to 350 F.
  2. Mix in just enough flour that the dough is not runny.
  3. Fold in oats and chocolate chips.
  4. Use a tablespoon to drop on a cookie sheet lined with parchment.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the edges are starting to brown.

I don’t like to throw away food unless it is necessary.  This was a good way to use up the extra pie filling, and turned out to be a yummy, filling snack!
