Sweet Potato Crackers Recipe

I had some left over Mashed Parsnip Sweet Potatoes from my past recipe and I came across a few Pumpkin cracker recipes on the net. I adapted them of course and after a few trials, I bring you Sweet Potato Parsnip Crackers. You can used mashed, boiled sweet potatoes or canned pumpkin in place of the Mashed Parsnip Potatoes.

I dust with cornmeal instead of flour because it falls off easier without adding the extra calories. Silly I know, but every calorie when you are on a diet counts. I use a silicone baking mat on my counter to keep the dough from sticking and for easy clean up. I seasoned the tops with either brown sugar and cinnamon for a sweeter cracker. Then for the savory crackers, I used sea salt and sesame seeds or rosemary and seasoned salt. They came out delish, and I had to send the bag of crackers of to my moms before I ate them all!
