Sweet Potato Scones
1 tbsp butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 cup mashed sweet potato, room temperature
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar and salt. Beat in egg, then the mashed sweet potato. Stir until smooth.Sift in flour and baking powder. Stir until flour is completely mixed in. Dough should be slightly sticky, but not wet. If it is wet (i.e. if your sweet potatoes were unusually moist) add an additional tbsp or two of flour.
Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead three or four times before shaping intoa rectangle and rolling out to 1 inch thickness. Cut into triangles in desired size. Place on a silpat lined baking sheet.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes, until golden. Cool on a wire rack, or eat warm.
