This is another mystery-recipe, don't know where it came from...I save them from newspapers, magazines, friends...
Made this once, they were good, a nice "something different" than regular biscuits!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Delightfully moist and delicate! These are wonderful straight out of the oven with a pat (or two!) of butter. They're also great with sliced pork. Enjoy!


3 c
all purpose baking mix (bisquick, jiffy mix, pioneer brand or trader joes brand)
1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 can(s)
sweet potatoes/yams, drain & mash (15 oz)
(fresh cooked or baked can be used; also sub butternut squash if desired, just measure about 2 c. pulp)
3/4 c
fat-free milk
note: the leavening agents are already in the baking mix, no need to add baking powder/salt/baking soda

Preheat oven to 450 F.
In medium bowl, combine mix & cinnamon.
Add sweet potatoes and milk.
Roll dough out on floured surface to 3/4 to 1" thickness.
Cut w/2" biscuit cutter or glass.
Place on nonstick baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 min, or til golden brown.

Jack - I am not intending to make these for breakfast or for sandwiches!
If I want to make sandwiches, I'll use one of my homemade breads for them, not biscuits.

This would be a great way to use up leftover baked squash. I'm going to try to adapt for Paleo.
Thanks for sharing!

Carol, You might want to try rolling out a batch and cutting them into squares. Cut large enough they make great breakfast or brunch sandwiches with ham, scrambled eggs and cheese. We’ve been doing it for quite a while and they’re always a hit.

WOW Jan -- Awesome and pinched!!
I yam going to make these, yes maam, I yam, I yam, I yam!!!

As far as making drop biscuits - I always 'drop' them! Don't worry about cutting them in half - just break off a hunk, slather with butter and a small spoonful of jelly, jam or peanut butter and 'daintily' stuff into your mouth!! Repeat - Repeat - Repeat!!!

I might add a few more spices and some ------ whatever!!

This recipe brings back memories. My mother made these for me and my siblings when we were children and we LOVED them. She never used a recipe but they always came out the same. Unfortunately, I'm unable to duplicate them so I'm very pleased to see this posted. Can't wait to make them for my granddaughter. Thanks for sharing.
