Crispy! Sweet Potato and Sesame Seed Cookies

Crispy! Sweet Potato and Sesame Seed Cookies

These crispy cookies are made from sweet potato dough filled with aromatic sesame seeds. Be sure to make these when sweet potatoes are in season!


Sweet potato (cooked)
75 g
☆Cake flour
70 g
☆Almond flour
☆Sugar (I use beet sugar)
25 g
☆Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
a pinch
☆Sesame seeds
1.5 tablespoons
Canola oil
2 tablespoons


1. Cook the sweet potatoes using your favorite method. I usually peel, cut, and then cook them as normal in the rice cooker using 1 tablespoon of water. It's really easy and retains the sweetness.
2. Mash the sweet potatoes while they are hot, then set aside to cool.
3. Combine the ☆ ingredients and mix in a circular motion. Add the canola oil and mix. Mix in the mashed sweet potato, then bring it all together into one ball of dough.
4. Thinly roll out the dough (to about 5mm thick) and cut using cookie cutters. If you sandwich the dough between sheets of plastic wrap, it's easier to roll out.
5. Bake for 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 180℃. If the cookies look too browned, you can flip them over (but you don't have to). Reduce the heat to 150~160℃ and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
