Sweet potato biscuits (nelson)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1¼ cup Whole wheat pastry flour
½ cup Unbleached white flour
2 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoons Margarine
⅓ cup Apple juice
1 cup Well mashed; cooked sweet potato
3 tablespoons Honey
⅓ cup Finely chopped walnuts OR pecans

Preheat over to 425F degrees.

In a mixing bowl, sift together the flours, baking powder, and salt. Work the margarine in with a pastry blender or the tines of a fork until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add the apple juice, sweet potato, honey, and nuts, and work them in to form a soft dough.

Turn the dough out onto a well-floured board and knead in just enough flour to maek the dough lose its stickiness.

With floured hands, divide the dough into 16 equal parts. Shape into small balls and arrange on a lightly oiled cookie sheet, patting them down a bit to flatten. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted into the center of one tests clean. Transfer the biscuits to a plate and serve hot.
