Snappy Sweet Potato Crackers
Recipe: Snappy Sweet Potato Crackers
- 1-1/2 cups flour
- 2-1/2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 medium sweet potato
- 1/4 cup milk

- Sift flour, baking powder and salt together into a large bowl.
- Add butter and by hand work it into the flour mixture until it becomes a coarse mealy texture.
- Cook sweet potato in boiling water until softened. Cool, remove skin and purée with milk to make a smooth mixture.
- Beat 1 cup of the sweet potato purée into flour and then turn out onto a lightly floured surface.
- Knead well about 80 turns. Divide dough into 4 pieces and roll each very thin. Cut into rounds or squares; sprinkle with salt, sesame seeds and a little cayenne, if desired.
