I discovered this recipe a little while ago on a blog called Sweet Potato Chronicles. I made them again last night and with a little melted(or cream) cheese and jam, they are absolutely divine.
Sweet Potato Scones
1 cup sweet potato
2/3 cup soy or skim milk
2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon sugar
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup canola or safflower oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Boil or steam sweet potato, drain, mash and cool.
Combine milk and juice and let stand 10 minutes, until thickens to buttermilk consistency.
In large bowl, combine flours, soda, powder, sugar and salt.
Add sweet potato, milk and oil. Combine to form soft dough.
Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Press out to 1 inch thick. Cut into 3 inch squares.
Place on baking sheet ½ inch apart and make 15 minutes or until brown.
