How to Make Sweet Potato Biscuits


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
    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.
