Baby Baby Sweet Baby....

Sweet potato that is;)

This recipe is originally from Martha Stewart Living- a long while back.  I've been making these tasty little suckers for years- and what better day to make them then during ANOTHER snowstorm!!!!

Here's what you'll need...
flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, butter, brown sugar, sweet potato, ginger, orange zest, yogurt, water
Roast the sweet potatoes at 375 degrees until they smell done- about 45 min or so, you'll need about 1 cup.
While Little Miss was mashing, I was zesting an orange, and adding half of the zest to 2 Tbsp. of melted butter(then set it aside).
Then combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, sugar, remaining orange zest, grated ginger, brown sugar
cut in the butter
then add the sweets and the yogurt, and 2 Tbsp. of water
mix it up real good, then turn it out onto a well floured surface- and pat it into a circle that's about 1/2" thick
This beautiful rolling board- that I use all the time was handcrafted by a good family friend- check out his facebook page. He's makes gorgeous cutting boards and chopping blocks too.

Then- cut them with a cute biscuit/cookie cutter
brush them with the orange butter that you made in the beginning, pop them into a 400 degree oven for 17 minutes

OK- this is TOTALLY off topic- but check out this crazy-Mosie-trick. I swear I gave birth to an acrobat...this is what he was doing while we were waiting for the biscuits to finish baking. He looks like he's on a pommel horse right?!

We had the biscuits with a delicious spinach, broccoli and cheese soup for din-din- oh so tasty!
