Recipe type: Breads and Rolls
- 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 375 degrees F (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.
