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


  • 1Preheat 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.
  • 2In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes, oil, maple syrup, Braggs apple cider vinegar, and salt.
  • 3Mix together in another bowl with a wire whisk. flour, baking powder, and nutmeg.
  • 4Fold 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.
  • 5Drop 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.
