Recipe: Sweet Potato Biscuits

Spread the love

I am still working on using up my sweet potatoes from my Bountiful Basket. So the kids and I tried a new biscuit recipe.  It was rather easy to make, we ate them with honey butter (which makes anything taste good).  I like my biscuits a little more flaky but over all these were really good.


Sweet Potato Biscuits

Recipe from Paula Deen on the Food Network

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 F.

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.)


I do not have a biscuit cutter so I just cut them in squares…works for me.
