Sweet Potato Crackers with sesame seeds.

The sweet potatoes did well even though they were planted in July.
I made sweet potato pie yesterday and today sweet potato crackers.

The stuff you'll need, plus milk. It didn't make it into the picture.

Flour, baking powder and salt together. Add butter and by hand work it until it becomes a coarse meal texture.

throw in the sweet potato puree. I spared you the pictures of making the puree in the blender.

I thought I had made a pile of crumbs here.

But it turned into some really nice dough.
take half.

stretch it out.

roll it out as thin as you can.

Sprinkle Sesame seeds on and then lightly roll them in.

Cut in what ever shapes you want. sprinkle salt and cayenne to taste.

Use a fork to make holes if you want, I tried some with and some without. The ones without puffed up like little pillows.

  • 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 .
