1 cup mashed baked sweet potato (about 2 medium)
2/3 cup whole milk
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 ¼ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes or until tender and easily pierced with the tip of a sharp knife. Allow to cool in their jackets. When cool enough to handle, halve them, scoop out the flesh, and mash it with a fork or potato masher.
2. In a medium bowl, mix the sweet potato, milk, and butter. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add to the potato mixture. Gently mix the dry ingredients into the sweet potato mixture to form a soft dough. Drop the dough by tablespoonful onto a greased baking sheet.
3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until a deep golden orange tinged with brown. Serve warm, highly recommended by the chef!!! or let cool on a wire rack.
