1 1/2 c
whole wheat flour
1/2 c
unbleached white flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
3 Tbsp
1/3 c
apple juice
1 c
sweet potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
3 Tbsp
1/3 c
finely chopped walnuts or pecans


1Preheat oven to 425.
2In a mixing bowl, sift together the flours, baking powder and salt.
3Work in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
4Add apple juice, potato, honey and nuts and work until it resembles a soft dough.
5Turn dough out onto a well-floured board and knead enough extra flour to make the dough lose its stickiness.
6With floured hands, divide dough into 16 equal parts.
7Shape into small balls and arrange on a lightly oiled cookie sheet, patting them down a bit to flatten them.
8Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
9Serve hot with Creamy Mushroom Soup.
