I had mentioned in the previous post about sweet potato biscuits so here they are.
Found this recipe in one of my Taste of Home magazines so I thought I’d give it a try.
These are really good with the homemade honey butter but not so much dry.
My family didn’t complain, actually ate 3 to 4 biscuits a piece. They weren’t bad but I think I might
cut back on the flour & add more sweet potato. I will also make them thicker. It was
my first time making homemade biscuits so this was definitely a learning experience.
See how thin they are? Next time I won’t roll them as much.
Ingredients – Biscuits
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 cup shortening (I know this is unhealthy 😦 )
1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup half & half cream
1/2 cup butter softened
2 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
In a small bowl combine the first six ingredients. Cut in the shortening until mixture
resembles coarse crumbs. Combine sweet potatoes & cream. Stir into crumb
mixture just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface.
Gently knead 8 to 10 times. Pat or roll out to 1/2 inch in thickness.
Cut with floured biscuit cutter. Place 1 inch apart on a greased baking sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.
In a small bowl, beat the butter, honey & cinnamon until blended. Add a little more
honey if you can still taste the butter flavor.
