  1. 4 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 cup sugar
  3. 4 teaspoons baking powder
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  6. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  7. 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  8. 3/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into1/2-inch pieces
  9. 1 1/2 cups mashed cooked sweet potato
  10. 2/3 cup dried cranberries
  11. 1/2 cup buttermilk
  12. 1 large egg
  13. 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  14. 1 cup maple syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Line rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour and next 6 ingredients. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; cut in sweet potato and cranberries until well combined. In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk and egg, and gently stir into flour mixture just until combined (dough will be sticky).
  3. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and roll to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough into 24 wedges, and place on prepared pans.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on pans for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks, and let cool for 30 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar and maple syrup, and drizzle over scones.
