Giveaway-update, 12 Days of Christmas Cookies and Cinnamon Sweet Potato Cookies

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Here in The Netherlands we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but I really enjoyed looking at all the tastylooking dishes that everyone made!
With the help of my mom I was finally able to narrow down the 25 recipes I really liked for my 12 Days of Christmas Cookies to 11. Yes, that's right: 11. As I already mentioned here I would like your help to pick the 12th cookie! If you'd like to win a Rookworst, please go to this post and leave a comment telling me what cookie you think I should bake! Deadline of the Giveaway is November 30th!!

So without further ado, I now present you the cookies my mom and I picked for 12 Days of Christmas Cookies in no particular order:

  1. World Peace Cookies
  2. Snickerdoodles
  3. Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops
  4. Mexican Wedding Cakes
  5. Brutti ma Buoni
  6. Chocolate Crinkles
  7. Stained Glass Christmas Cookies
  8. Butter Pecan Slice and Bake Cookies
  9. Chocolate Cornflake Cookies
  10. White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
  11. M&M Cookies
  12. ?????
So I had some sweet potatoes laying around, waiting for me to do something with them..... But what to do??? I had a craving for cookies and went looking on the Internet. Over at One Frugal Foodie I found one particular cookie that used cinnamon. This recipe was vegan and that intrigued me as I never made a vegan cookie before.

I was very curious as to how these would turn out as the recipe is vegan, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free and nut-free. The cookies were a bit sticky and had a cakey feel to them, they were soft. As for the taste: I was pleasantly surprised!! The cookies were really good, my coworkers gobbled these down so fast that I wasn't even able to salvage one for my parents to try! The recipe can be found here, Alisa even gives several options for toppings and add-ins!
