Sweet Potato Biscuits

Yield about 2 dozen


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup sugar

How to Make It

  1. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Combine sweet potatoes, shortening, and sugar; mix well. Cut into dry ingredients with a pastry blender until well blended.

  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 4 to 5 times.

  3. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on greased baking sheets. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheets, and serve warm.
