These are amazing with chili or stews.

If you use a whisk to mix the dry ingredients before you add the wet their is no need to sift the dry ingredients.

How to Make sweet potatoe drop biscuits


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. and I use a silicone mat on my cookie sheet. you can use a Silpat or parchment paper. whatever you are familiar with.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes, oil, maple syrup, Braggs apple cider vinegar, and salt.
  3. Mix together in another bowl with a wire whisk. flour, baking powder, and nutmeg.
  4. Fold the Dry ingredients into the wet with a wooden spoon until the dry ingredients are moist and crumbly; be careful not to over mix. add 2 tablespoons of water and lightly knead 5 or 6 times until the dough holds together, adding extra water if needed. Don't knead too much or it will toughen the biscuits.
  5. Drop the dough in golf ball-size pieces onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the tops are lightly browned and firm to touch.
