Over the years I've tried many recipes for sweet potato biscuits- I have one I love made out of pumpkin too- but that's another day! I've tweaked a bit- but here is the recipe that we use around here---
Thought I would share since I was told 'It's National Biscuit Month' --- So yee haw- gives me reason to make good buttermilk and any other kind of biscuits more than I already do!
Mixing dry ingredients- super easy
Mash your cooked sweet potato (some people may buy the canned ones....not here- cook up a fresh one!!!!!)
Make well in dry ingredients- add wet ones and stir till just combined/moistened. The dough will be soft!
Turn dough out onto a fairly heavily floured surface and knead 4 to 5 times- adding flour as needed.
Pat dough to roughly 1/2 to 3/4 inch- I like them thick! Cut with biscuit cutter or a knife or whatever you like!
Bake at 425 for about 18 minutes (I check at 15 and since they are so thick they need a few more minutes!)
Yields about 9- maybe 10.
Goodness gracious- they are good enough by themselves....but in the event they needed more- my sweet girl asked for the Sweet Potato butter (lovingly given to me by my Mom on my birthday--- Grandpa Jack is her dad!) and of course butter and Honey..... Mmmmm Mmmmm Mmmmmmm........ need I say more!!!!
And because so many Southerner's love their biscuits the sweet Gypsies at Junk Gypsy designed a shirt a few years ago- that I purchased from them in Warrenton and I get a kick out of it---- No Southern food did not save my soul- Only one person did that- Thank you Jesus! But I do pray that God blesses the Buttermilk biscuits each time I bake them and eat them!
Here are the ingredients:
2 c. all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 TBSP sugar
1/4- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg - depends on your taste!
1 c. cooked, mashed sweet potato
2/3 c. milk
1/3 c. vegetable oil
Follow above instructions and enjoy.
So go ahead- Get yourself some biscuits in honor of National Biscuit month!!!
