Sweet Potato Crackers

I think this is my favorite way to eat sweet potatoes!.

Sweet Potaro Crackers have some sort of an addicting quality. I had to put the rest in the freezer to stop eating so many.

I had some odd looking sweet potatoes this year. It’s not their fault, they just want to be accepted for who they are and treated like any other normal sweet potato.

I let them sit by the window for a few minutes to enjoy the sun, they liked that.

PNpSPC-210
They liked their time in the oven, they said it reminded them of Arizona with the dry heat.  Then I exfoliated them.

PNpSPC-212
Then they were all excited to get into the mash pit. 

PNpSPC-215
Mix flour, baking powder and salt together.

PNpSPC-216
Add butter and cut into the flour mixture until the butter pieces are smaller than peas.

PNpSPC-218
2 cups mashed sweet potato, the sweet potatoes weren’t real excited about coming out of the measuring cup.

PNpSPC-223
Or maybe I was just more forceful with the second cup.

PNpSPC-219
Pour in the milk

and mix.
PNpSPC-226
Get your hands right in there if you feel the urge, I certainly did. When it comes together  knead it on a floured surface.

PNpSPC-229
Knead well.
PNpSPC-231
Divide dough into 2 or more pieces.

PNpSPC-235
Roll very thin. This is where you figure out if you put enough flour down or not. It’d be kinda too late anyway so don’t worry about it now.

PNpSPC-236
Cut into squares, triangles, diamonds, anything.

PNpSPC-237
I got fancy, I made squares.
Sprinkle with salt, sesame and cayenne.

Ant then remember to poke them thoroughly with a fork to prevent the pillow look.

Sample while baking 
Serve however you like to eat crackers
and if there are still any left they can be stored in the freezer.
