1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes
3 tablespoons butter -- melted and cooled
honey -- if desired
Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Grease a baking sheet; set aside. Sift flour,
baking powder and salt into a medium-size bowl; stir in sugar. In a large bowl,
thoroughly mix potatoes and 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter with a fork. Add dry
ingredients and mix to form a soft dough. Turn out onto floured surface. Roll
out with a floured rolling pin or pat dough with your hands to make a round
about 1/2-inch thick. Cut into rounds with a 2-inch fluted or plain cookie
cutter. Place 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart on baking sheet; brush tops with remaining
1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter. Bake about 20 minutes or until light brown.
Split and serve warm with butter and honey.
Makes about 10 scones.
