You will Need:
Scones
2 cups Immaculate Baking Co.™ organic all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup sweet potatoes, drained, mashed (from 20-oz can)

Glaze
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 to 3 teaspoons milk FB_Sweet Potato Scones

Let’s Get Bakin’!

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. In large bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in butter, whipping cream, sweet potatoes, ginger and pecans until soft dough forms.
  2. On ungreased cookie sheet, roll or press dough into 8-inch round. Cut into 8 wedges with sharp knife, but do not separate wedges.
  3. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet; carefully separate wedges. Cool 20 minutes.
  4. In 1-quart saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat, stirring constantly, just until light brown. Stir in powdered sugar, vanilla and milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until smooth and spreadable (mixture will thicken as it cools). Drizzle over scones.
