Cookie Pies

A sugar cookie crust with sweet potato filling, topped with pecans and caramel.

 

Directions:

  2. Place potatoes in a small saucepan and cover with water. Boil for 30 minutes or until cooked through. Drain and place in a medium bowl.  Mash until smooth.

  4. Remove from oven and press down the center of the cookie to create a cup.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine mashed sweet potatoes, sugar, cinnamon, cream cheese and half of the whipped topping.
  6. Remove sugar cookie cups from muffin tin and place on a platter. Spoon sweet potato mixture into cooled cups and top with a dollop of whipped topping.
