ABOUT Sweet potato cookies RECIPE

I tried incorporating 5 winter ingredients in this cookie. Sweet Potato - a well known winter vegetable with good source of carbohydrates needed to produce energy for the extreme weather conditions Jaggery - gives warmth to the body to withstand the cold weather. Honey - a well known home remedy for cold and cough which is common in winter. Ghee - boosts your immune system to protect our body from allergies during winter. Dessicated coconut - actually I wanted to give snow flakes effect :yum: also coconut is widely used as a natural moisturizer for the body and in cold weather countries where fresh coconut is not available this dessicated coconut is a keeper!
