Sweet Potato Biscuits

I got the following recipe from the Food Network ...

To be honest, until I had never heard of Sweet Potato Biscuits until I was reading an Amish fiction book and it mentioned them!

They sound good anyways, haven't tried them yet but do plan on it sometime.

Sweet Potato Biscuits 


1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 heaping tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) softened butter
2 to 4 tablespoons milk (depending on the moisture of the potatoes)


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate, large bowl, mix the sweet potatoes and butter. 

Add the flour mixture to the potato mixture and mix to make a soft dough. 

Then add milk a tablespoon at a time to mixture and continue to cut in. 

Turn the dough out onto a floured board and toss lightly until the outside of the dough looks smooth. 

Roll the dough out to 1/2-inch thick and cut with a biscuit cutter. 

Place the biscuits on a greased pan and coat tops with melted butter.

Bake for about 15 minutes. 

(Watch your oven: If the biscuits are browning too fast, lower the temperature.)
