Recipes for Scones and Sweet Potato Biscuits
My recipe on Tuesdays has dropped into the non-existent, hasn't it. I'm sorry about that. Here are the Sweet Potato biscuit and Orange Cranberry Cream scone recipes to try and make it up a little to you, and since you asked for them too.... Both recipes are incredibly quick and easy. The scones are always made when I have company over during the morning. They never fail to bring smiles.

Sweet Potato biscuits

Mix together:

2 cups flour
1Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

In separate bowl - mix:

1/4 cup oil
1 1/4 cup mashed sweet potato
2Tablespoons maple syrup

Combine the dry and the wet. The dough is very soft and somewhat sticky. You can sprinkle lightly with flour to help relieve the stickiness. Shape into a circle about 3/4 inch+ thick. Use a biscuit cutter or a small glass to cut out your biscuits. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

(***trick - I always use a 1/4 cup or so of milk and 1 cup of sweet potato instead of the 1 1/4 cup sweet potato.)

Orange Cranberry Cream scones

Mix in medium bowl:

2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


1 1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 to 3/4 cup dried cranberries
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
Squeeze the juice of half an orange into bowl

Combine dry and wet. Knead gently in bowl between 5 to 10 times. On a lightly floured surface pat into an 8 inch circle. Cut into wedges and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. I brush cream on top of the wedges and sprinkle sugar over each of them. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes.

(***Trick: I just add cream until the consistency is right. You want the dough wet but not real sticky.)
