Easy Sweet Potato Biscuits

I love sweet potatoes, they are a delicious starch that has a lot of good vitamins and nutrients. And I love how they kind of are a given at any Holiday meal.

Do you remember my Thanksgiving Table post when I showed photos of these gorgeous biscuits on my holiday table with that delicious looking ham, today I am sharing the recipe!

I have been wanting to try these biscuits for a few weeks, because I often have a leftover sweet potato or extra mashed potatoes when I fix them.  But don’t get nervous, I have an even easier way to prepare these biscuits for you today, Easy Sweet Potato Biscuits.

How about some prepared sweet potatoes, with a baking mix, to make these super yummy biscuits come together in a flash.

I don’t often make biscuits, but when I do, I want them soft, fluffy, tender, and moist.  Honestly, these biscuits have a barely there flavor of the sweet potato, I mean, really, they don’t have an intense flavor anyway. And how much spice and seasoning do we have to add to make them have a super taste. So if you are looking for a tender biscuit with a lightly sweet, lightly sweet potato flavor, these are for you. I haven’t added sugar because I wanted a more savory flavor, but you could add 1/4 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoons of pumpkin spice to make them a sweet biscuit.

For ease in making these, use a can of sweet potatoes. Drain out the liquid and mash the potatoes with a fork. This gives you about 2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes.

Place all the ingredients in a bowl, and use a fork to cut the butter and sweet potatoes into the baking mix.

Once the mix looks like this ( above ) remove it from the bowl, and gently knead together until it is mostly solid.

Add flour to your table and gently pat into a 1 1/2 inch thick dough. I used my hands alone, but you could also use a rolling pin.

Once the dough is flat and even, cut out scalloped circles using a biscuit cutter. I have nested cutters that are cookie cutters that worked perfectly.

My cutter is about 2 inches.

Place the dough rounds onto a parchment lined sheet pan not touching, and if you like, brush them with egg white to give them a nice shine at finish.

Bake at 450 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.

Makes about 10-12 biscuits.
