I was bored. And I had some leftovers in the fridge. So I messed around in the kitchen and came up with these. They turned out surprisingly tasty.
Sweet Potato Cookie Cakes
1/3 c. softened butter
2 large eggs
1 c. cooked mashed sweet potatoes or yams
1 yellow cake mix
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. ginger
1/2 t. nutmeg
Beat butter, eggs, and sweet potatoes until creamy and smooth. Add dry cake mix and spices. Stir until mixed. Don't worry about a few lumps, they'll cook out. Grease two pie plates. Spread half of the batter in each pan. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes, until lightly browned and center is set.
Serve warm or cold. Whipped cream cheese is delicious with these. Or try meadow cream.
I thought I'd posted this recipe, but apparently I haven't. Meadow Cream was inspired by Brian Jacques' description of massive feasts in his Redwall books. It's tasty on pancakes, waffles, toast, fresh bread, muffins, cake, banana bread, brownies, bacon....
1 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. honey
Cream everything together. Keep beating until very silky smooth and fluffy. Use as a spread or frosting or just eat it straight out of the bowl with a spoon. Makes about 2 cups.
