Delicious Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe

I made these for Easter to go along with our Easter Meal. Instead of using a round biscuit cutter, I decided to use a heart shaped one. My daughter likes putting gravy over top of her biscuits, but I just like them plain with a little butter. Hubby enjoys these sweet potato biscuits with either honey butter or some warm maple syrup poured over them.

Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe

3 cups all purpose flour
6 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. granulated sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
4 tbsp. vegetable shortening
1 cup milk

Sift together the all purpose flour, baking powder, granulated sugar and salt. Stir in cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the mashed sweet potatoes and then the milk. Cut in the vegetable shortening. Mix into a soft dough, I find it best to just use my hands. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface. Use a biscuit cutter and cut out your biscuits. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Do not over-bake them!

I can't tell if the photo shows they are doughy, but I don't think so. I like sweet potatoes and I've never had them in this way.

My husband likes sweet potatoes and I don't, but who doesn't like a warm biscuit!! I think I will try them!

As a child, my grandmother and Mother made these. Will try yours tonight. Hope they are as good as I remember.
