Preparation

Preheat the oven at 350° F (190°C).

Prepare 2 baking sheets by lining them with parchemin paper.

In a bowl, combine the brown sugar and the butter.

Cream with an electric mixer for a few minutes.

Add the egg and continue beating.

Incorporate the sweet potato and the molasses.

Mix well and reserve.

In another bowl, combine the flour, the ground spices, baking soda, baking powder as well as the salt.

While you are still beating, add the dry ingredients to the wet ones alternating with the milk.

Place generous tablespoons of cookie batter on the baking sheets making sure to leave a 2 inch space around each cookie.

With a floured knife, make 3 small incisions on a half of each cookie, from the center to the outside to create the «bear paw» pattern (it is much easier if you dip your knife in some flour each time you make an incision).

Bake on the top rack of the oven for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let the cookies rest on a rack for a few minutes.

Keep in an airthight container with a piece of fresh bread inside the box to keep the cookies moist.

Note:

To cook the sweet potatoe, simply place it on a baking sheet and cook in a preheated oven at 375° F for about 40 minutes or until a knife is easily inserted in the center.

You can also cook it in water but the potatoe will be less sweet.
