Bea's Sweet Potato Jacks
By Bea L. BeachChic
Some people call these fried pies or fritters but my mama called them jacks. When I make these I always think about my daddy because he loved them so much.
The only difference in this recipe and the way my mama made them is that she used canned biscuits for the dough, which saves time and is also good. I have done these both ways but really perfer this dough if I am not time limited.
I also use this same dough recipe when I make Apple or Peach Jacks.
Janet got "Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice"

We call them fried pies and I love them. I had them a lot when I lived in Nashville as my ex-mother-in-law made them with peaches and they were delish!!!

So strange Bea I was thinking just this morning about going through my Mothers files to find her sweet potatoe jacks recipe and here I find you have done the same thing. Wow great minds think the same. I love jacks of all kinds. Mother use to dust hers with confection sugar. Thanks for saving me the trouble. These are a winner in my book.
