Everyone loves an easy dessert recipe and this Cinnamon Sweet Potato Scone Recipe will not disappoint. Sweet potatoes might be a surprising ingredient, but the potato makes the scones crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. To make this easy Southern recipe, make a dough that is similar to that of Southern biscuits and add in mashed sweet potatoes, buttermilk, and vanilla. Then, bake the biscuits and enjoy the wonderful cinnamon and ginger aroma. A brown sugar glaze takes these scones to the next level. Once you try one of these scones, you will be asking yourself why you haven't been using this recipe for sweet potatoes all along!
