Sweet Potato Biscuits

Lynn demonstrates how to make Sweet Potato Biscuits, a great accompaniment to breakfast or dinner.  These go great with honey butter.  From Paula Deen.


  • 1-1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 heaping Tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes
  • ¼ cup (1/2 stick) softened butter
  • 2-4 Tablespoons milk (depending on the moisture of the potatoes)
  • Melted butter for brushing tops of biscuits

Preheat oven to 450°.  Grease or spray with cooking spray a baking pan.

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 ½" 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.
