I had planned on giving you a good review of a nice cozy mystery today, but finishing the book almost made me want to strangle someone, so instead let’s just grab a cup of Assam and have some sweet potato scones together.
Everyone enjoying this gorgeous Fall weather? Along with Pumpkin Spice lattes from Starbucks, my favorite thing about Fall is the root vegetables and sweet potatoes that are available!
Today I am having a nice pot of Assam, which I bought at the San Francisco Herb Company. It’s smoky and reminds me of campfires and it is going pretty well with these Sweet Potato Scones.
SWEET POTATO SCONES
1 CUP OF ALL PURPOSE FLOUR
1/2 TSP. SALT
2 TSPS. BAKING POWDER
1 TSP SUGAR
1 CUP COOKED AND MASHED SWEET POTATOES
3 TBSP. MELTED BUTTER
1 OR 2 TBSP. MILK
Sift the flour, salt, baking powder into your bowl and then add the sugar. In a separate bowl, mix the sweet potatoes and 2 Tbsp. butter. Add dry ingredients and mix well forming a soft dough, adding milk as necessary. Roll out and use a round cookie cutter or biscuit cutter to cut out scones then place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush tops with remaining melted butter. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.
Enjoy a taste of Fall! What is your favorite Fall Tea or Food? xxP
