Sweet Potato Biscuits
I usually pat my biscuit dougn in a rectangle and cut into squares.
- 1 c
- all purpose flour
- 3 tsp
- baking powder
- 2 tsp
- brown sugar
- 1 tsp
- 1/2 tsp
- 3 Tbsp
- 3/4 c
- cooked mashed sweet potatoes
- 1/4 c
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar,salt and nutmeg. 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.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and pat out to 3/4 inch
thickness. Cut into circles using a biscuit cutter or cut into 2 inch squares. Place biscuits 1 inch apart onto a greased baking sheet.
Option:brush melted butter on top of biscuits and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
