Sweet Potato Crackers

I have a deep love for anything sweet potato (who doesn't). Sweet potato fries, sweet potato chips, mashed and baked sweet potatoes...well the list stops there because I can't think of anything else sweet potatoed. Fortunately I came across this recipe on Pinterest and immediately bought the ingredients.

Ingredients
1.5 cups flour
2.5 tsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp unsalted butter
1 cup of sweet potato puree (I used 1 medium sweet potato)
1 tsp sugar
Salt, sugar or paprika to taste

1. First of all you have to make your sweet potato puree and it is super simple. I peeled my sweet potato, cut it into cubes and boiled them until it was tender. Next up I blended them in our food processor to get the consistency of baby food or mashed potatoes.



2. Now take 1 cup of the puree and mix in the baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, butter, and 1 tsp sugar to form a thick dough


3. Roll out the dough and cut with cookie cutters. I have tons of small ones so I mixed it up (Christmas theme eh?)


4. Sprinkle with salt, sugar, paprika, or whatever your heart desires. Place on a baking sheet (I used tin foil) and bake at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes. Flip the crackers and bake for another 4 minutes.


5. Enjoy these puppies. They were delish! My favorite were the sugar coated ones :-)


The present and stocking cookie cutter was a fail. The crackers were random blobs but still yummy!

P.S. I actually made sweet potato bread last night with my leftover puree and will be posting the recipe soon!
