Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 3/4 cup mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup milk
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in the shortening until pieces of shortening are pea-sized or smaller. Mix in the sweet potatoes, and enough of the milk to make a soft dough.
  3. Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and roll or pat out to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into circles using a biscuit cutter or a drinking glass. Place biscuits 1 inch apart onto a greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
