Sweet Potato Biscuits
I think rolls are an absolute must at Thanksgiving, but yummy biscuits are my favorite runner up! That melting honey on top looks like ooey gooey goodness! They also have sweet potatoes in them. Shhh, the kids will never know!
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 heaping tablespoons sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes
- 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) softened butter
- 2 to 4 tablespoons milk (depending on the moisture of the potatoes)
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
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 1/2-inch 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. (Watch your oven: If the biscuits are browning too fast, lower the temperature.)
