How to Make Sweet Potato Ham Biscuits

  • 3Drop by tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Top each biscuit with tablespoon of brown sugar. (Or, to make pretty biscuits, turn dough out onto a floured surface, and roll or pat out to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into circles using a fancy-edge biscuit cutter. Place biscuits 1 inch apart onto a greased baking sheet; top with tablespoon of brown sugar.) Cook 15-20 minutes, or until done. Best served warm.
