    Thumbs up Sweet Potato Biscuits

    I have not made these but a friend of mine did and said they were wonderful with honey butter.


    Sweet Potato Biscuits
    Recipe courtesy Paula Deen



    Difficulty: Easy
    Prep Time: 5 minutes
    Cook Time: 15 minutes
    Yield: 15 to 18 biscuits
    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.)

    sounds yummy. I wonder if you can substitute cooked, mashed pumpkin instead?

    I think you could Beverly, I have substituted pumpkin for sweet potatoes in a few other recipes and they always turned out fine.
