Sweet Potato Biscuits....Sunny...75*

It will soon be time to harvest the sweet potatoes: Here's one of our favorite ways to cook them up, add another veggie to supper (or breakfast) with out them even noticing :)

Sweet Potato Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp. baking powder
2 T. Brown sugar
3 T. soft butter
1 cup cooked, mashed and cooled sweet potatoes
2-4 T. Buttermilk
combine dry ingredients, cut in butter and sweet potatoes till crumbly. add Buttermilk a little at a time , just till dough comes together, but is not sticky. how much you need will depend on how ‘wet’ the sweet potatoes are.
Pat out on a floured board and cut into 8 large or 12 smaller biscuits bake in a greased pan for 25-30 minutes or till just browned.
Wonderful warm with butter and sorghum or honey!
But also really good with supper when you want to add another vegetable in a different way.
