How to Make Sweet Potato Biscuits
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Stir together first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut butter cubes and shortening into flour mixture with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse meal. Cover and chill 10 minutes.
- Whisk together buttermilk and sweet potato. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
- Turn dough out onto a well floured surface and knead lightly 3 or 4 times. Pat or roll dough to 3/4 inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch round cutter, reshaping scraps once (do not twist cutter). Place rounds on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Remove from oven and brush tops of biscuits with melted butter. Serve immediately.
