Sweet Potato and Cranberry Scones with Brown Sugar Icing

Sweet Potato and Cranberry Scones with Brown Sugar Icing - Chew Nibble Nosh

I know that Thanksgiving dinner is a massive meal, and we don’t want to fill up too early, but you’ve still got to have something with your morning coffee, right?

These buttery, fall speckled little scones are the perfect way to start your holiday, and they can be made ahead or a lot of the prep can be done the night before, saving you some time in the morning.

To begin, I peeled and diced up two medium-sized sweet potatoes.

I figured we needed a breath of Spring air over here.

My goodness, it’s cold!  And while it’s crazy cold here, I know that it’s even crazier colder in a lot of places.  Yes, it’s winter.  We get it.  We aren’t complaining.  Contrary to popular belief, even though we spent the past 15 years down south and this is our first real winter in a good, long while, we aren’t crouched in a corner rocking back and forth and crying for our flip-flops.  No, we’re actually enjoying this winter vortex mess…well, as much as we can, I guess.

 You know that moment of panic when you realize that you haven’t been able to go shopping and there’s very little left in the house to make a decent meal, and you won’t be able to go to the store because of a Polar Vortex?  Yeah, that’s where these biscuits were last seen.  I’d been in the house for four days, looked like I hadn’t been out of the house in four days, and realized that we’d pretty much eaten everything decent.  I actually Googled soup recipes using ingredients I had on hand, so I made that for dinner, and then was thrilled to realize that I had everything I needed to throw together some of our favorite dinner-time biscuits to go with the Google soup.
