      Wonderful! I made these with yams and hard margarine as the shortening. Because of their colour and richness, they taste like they are made with cheese! I didn't have a 2" press handy so I just free formed these and they still worked out great. This is a recipe I will make over and over. I'm thinking of adding some chopped chives and a dash of garlic next time! Thank you so much for sharing!!!

      Very good! I made these this morning using drained canned sweet potaties. I only used about 2 T of milk and the dough was perfect, very easy to work with. Cooking time was perfect and they are moist and tasty. The sweet potatoes also lend a nice color and this is an easy way to get a little veggies into my bread loving kids!

      These were pretty good.Here in the caribbean we don't have the same orange coloured sweet potato I assumed you used,I used the local kind which is less sweet and lower water content,so i added alot more milk.Plus some cinnamon sugar.
