I made sweet potato pie yesterday and today sweet potato crackers.
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 2 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 medium NC Sweet Potato (1 cup)
- 1/4 cup milk
- coarse salt
- sesame seeds
- cayenne pepper
Sift flour, baking powder and salt together into a large bowl. Add butter and by hand work it until it becomes a coarse meal texture.
Cook sweet potato in boiling water until softened. Cool, remove skin and purée with milk to make a smooth mixture. You will need 1 cup of sweet potato purée.
Beat sweet potato purée into flour and then turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead well or not, I didn't.
Divide dough into 4 pieces and roll each very thin.
Cut into rounds or squares. Sprinkle with salt, sesame seeds and a little cayenne, if desired.
Bake in a preheated 350 F oven on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes or until bottoms are slightly browned. Cool on rack .
