Next to pumpkin, the ever so sweet potato is a fall favorite in many ways, and this week I had a can of pureed sweet potato and I wanted some homemade biscuits to go with dinner that night, so I combined the two thoughts and found a easy recipe for sweet potato biscuits. These gems were simple, tasty with a hint of sweet potato, pretty too and best with honey!
Sweet Potato Biscuits
1 1/4 c. all purpose flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
3/4 c. mashed cooked or canned sweet potato puree
1/4 c. soft butter
2 to 4 Tbsp. milk
Preheat oven to 400. Sift together flour, sugar, b.powder and salt . In a another bowl mix the sweet potatoes and butter, add flour mixture and make a soft dough. Add milk a tablespoon at a time to the mixture and cut in. Turn dough onto floured surface and knead lightly and smooth. Roll dough out to 1/2 in. thick and cut with cutter. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake for about 15-20 min., keep a eye on them. Cool. Enjoy!
These were such a hit I think they will be on my Thanksgiving menu. They can also be made with pumpkin since they are related in some way! lol
