    I was just looking through one of the little magazine type flyers Tractor Supply puts out and came acrossed this recipe
    Lewis W. Mayers is the original recipe baker its one of his favorites...

    2 cups flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    3 tsp baking powder
    4 tbs sugar
    4 tbsp shortning
    1 cup cooked mashed sweet potato
    3/4 c milk

    preheat oven to 450 deg
    sift dry ingredients
    cut in shortning
    stir in sweet potato and add milk gradually
    roll or pat out on a board and cut as desired.
    bake 8 - 10 minutes.

    I am so going to try this recipe. matter being I am heading to the store as soon as I get done posting this for some sweet tatters, YUM!

    Wonder what would happen if you tossed in some cinnamon...
    or rolled them in cinnamon and coarse sugar before baking...

    Quote:hmm thats an interesting twist, I will try it tomorrow when I make them up.
    Sweet potato, squash, and pumpkin, I would think would all make up the same.
    Im thinking sort of like a sweet potato pie taste?
    oh yeah gotta try that lol.
    ETA: this key board and its skipping letters will be replaced tomorrow. grrrrr
