These delicious crackers are good with soups, salads or just for snacking. Cut the dough into imaginative shapes: squares, rounds, stars, or triangles. A great holiday gift!
1 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
medium North Carolina sweetpotato (1 cup)
1/4 cup milk
kosher salt
sesame seeds

Sift flour, baking powder and salt together into a large bowl. Add butter and, by hand, work it into the flour mixture until it becomes a coarse meal texture.

Cook sweetpotato in boiling water until softened. Cool, remove skin and puree with milk to make a smooth mixture. You need 1 cup to make crackers.

Beat into flour, and then turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead well (about 80 turns). Divide dough into 4 pieces and roll each very thin. Cut into rounds or squares. Sprinkle with salt, sesame seeds and a little cayenne, if desired. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F. on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes, until bottoms are slightly browned. Turn over and bake 3-4 minutes more. Cool on a rack before storing in an airtight container.
