Another recipe from Screen Doors and Sweet Tea by Martha Foose. I love sweet potatoes and I love biscuits. This sounded like a perfect combination to me! Serve warm with a little butter and honey!
Sweet Potato Biscuits:
(Screen Doors and Sweet Tea)
1 cup mashed baked sweet potato
2/3 cup whole milk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 ¼ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 450*. Grease a baking sheet and set aside.
In a medium bowl, the sweet potato, milk, and butter. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add to the potato mixture. Gently mix the dry ingredients into the sweet potato mixture to form a soft dough. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a deep golden orange tinged with brown. Serve warm or let cool on a wire rack.
