Holiday Baking with Triscuit

I will be the first one to admit that as much as I like cooking, I am not much of a baker, however, I couldn’t pass up trying the recipe shown on the back of the box of the Limited Edition Triscuit Cranberry & Sage crackers.

Sweet Potato and Triscuits

Sweet Potatoes are a Superfood packed high in calcium, potassium, and vitamins A and C and during this time of year they are very inexpensive.  Sweet potatoes are often confused with yams, but yams are large, starchy roots grown in Africa and Asia. 

Sweet potatoes contain an enzyme that converts most of its starches into sugars as the potato matures. This sweetness continues to increase during storage and when they are cooked so when you add just a little brown sugar – POW – Sweet Goodness!
