Sweet Potato Biscuits


Adapted from Screen Doors and Sweet Tea by Martha Hall Foose

Ingredients

1 cup mashed baked sweet potato (about 2 medium)
2/3 cup whole milk
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Procedure

1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Grease a baking sheet and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, mix the sweet potato, milk, and butter. Sift together the four, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add to the potato mixture. Gently mix the dry ingredients into the sweet potato mixture to form a soft dough. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet.

3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until a deep golden orange tinged with brown. Serve warm or let cool on a wire rack. Makes 12 biscuits

Suggestion: Try using mashed pumpkin, zucchini, or yellow squash.
