I love this recipe. Need a biscuit in a hurry, this is the one. Fast to mix. I always bake my own potatoes no canned stuff. I have used buttermilk, makes them thick, 2% a little lighter. May try a combo. I have even left out the sugar and it was just fine. Worth every minute you put into them which is little. Never seem to have left overs. Awesome!
Sweet Potato Biscuits
Depending on the moisture content of sweet potatoes, you may need to adjust the quantity of milk, adding the remaining 1/4 cup. Eat these warm out of the oven with butter or jam.
