My other concern was using fresh sweet potato when recipe specified canned. I know Dorie said just use 1 cup of fresh mash, but that didn't seem to equate to 2 x 15 ounce cans. And I was right, because these were dry.
The taste test ...
Golden, flaky and great flavour but like I said, DRY. I knew at the time the mix was too crumbly. It did cross my mind to add some extra moisture but I second guessed myself and we ended up with hockey pucks. Boo. No time for a redo this week but I would love to have another go sometime.
After last month I feel like I've conquered my fear of pastry, maybe now I will work on perfecting the scone!
And now for something totally off topic but my sweet Oscar is 6 months old today!
Happy half birthday baby!
