Sweet Potato Biscuits

Printer Friendly Version

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons milk (depending on the moisture of the potatoes)

Directions:

  1. To cook sweet potatoes, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain and mash. Set aside to slightly cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, 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. Add milk, a tablespoon at a time, to mixture and continue to cut in. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead very gently until dough comes together, about five or six times. Shape into a disk, and pat to an even 1-inch thickness. With a floured 3-inch biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place on prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown.
