You asked so here’s my sweet potato biscuits recipe.
You can start with freshly cooked sweet potatoes but I usually bake an extra couple of sweet potatoes when we’re having baked sweet potatoes for dinner. Then in the next couple of days, I’ll use the leftover potatoes to make the biscuits.
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (plus additional for kneading)
3 heaping tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup milk (more may be needed)
Preheat the oven to 450º.
Mash sweet potatoes with melted butter. Stir in milk, adding enough that it’s the consistency of very loose mashed potatoes.
In a separate bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the sweet potato mixture and stir just til everything is mixed. Do not stir too much or you will have tough biscuits. Add more milk, just a little at a time til the mixture is the consistency of biscuit dough. Turn the dough out onto a floured board knead just a few time til the dough is smooth. Roll to 1/2-inch thick and cut with a biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes, or until brown on top.
