Let the Fall themed cookies continue! But really I (& you) make these Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookies throughout the year.🍪A light crispy exterior with a soft tender interior. Biting into these cookies when they are still warm, gives the perfect blend of melted chocolate & the traditional Autumn baking flavours, that so many of us love!
