Spiced Sweet Potato Cookies

Instead of pumpkin, these cookies are made with sweet potatoes. Molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger give them an autumnal flavor.

Note: To make mashed sweet potato, pierce a medium size sweet potato all over with a fork then microwave on high for 4 minutes. Turn potato over, then microwave for another four minutes or until fork tender. Let cool then scoop out 1/2 cup of flesh.
