    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to the boil. Add sweet potato, cover and steam until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Strain into a bowl and mash until smooth.
    3. Mix flour and salt together in a large bowl. Rub in butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in sugar, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Add mashed sweet potatoes; mix until dough comes together.
    4. Turn dough out onto a floured work surface; divide in half. Pat each half into a circle the size of a large dinner plate. Stamp out scones with a cutter or slice each circle into 8 wedges. Transfer scones to two baking trays.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

    This recipe was delicious. The sweet potatoes made it more moist than usual scones, but it was richer and more decadent because of it. I'd definitely make them again.  -  08 Dec 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
