Sweet Potato Biscuits


Sweet Potato Biscuits


We love hot biscuits- for breakfast  or with hot soups and stews on a cold night! These Sweet Potato Biscuits are a delicious and easy variation that will add a touch of fun fall flavor to your menu.

We recommend you serve them hot out of the oven with honey butter, or try them with a little leftover ham or turkey and a bit of cranberry sauce -YUM.



Sweet Potato Biscuits



Sweet Potato Biscuits


3/4 cup baked and mashed sweet potato (1 medium)*
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup buttermilk


Preheat oven to 400.

Whisk together sweet potato, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Set aside.  Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Stir the soda into the buttermilk.  Mix the sweet potato mix and the buttermilk into the flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are incorporated.  Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and kneed gently 4 to 6 times.  Roll the dough to about 1/2 – 3/4 inch thick.  Cut with 2 inch biscuit cutter.  Place on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake for 12- 15 minutes or until golden brown.

*Note:  baking the sweet potato will give a deeper richer flavor than boiling or microwaving.
