      Delicious, and very easy. My two year old daughter loved these, and they weren't very messy. Definitely one I will keep and reuse!

      Strangely, I didn't like these as well when hot, fluffy and fresh as I do at room temperature the next day. The texture is nicer, and the yam flavor comes out better. I used canned yams, and I was looking for more sweetness and yam flavor, so if I try these again, I will either use baked, mashed yams or add more sugar. I think I also might experiment with a little less oil. The dough seemed quite greasy, though the final product is fine.
