Sweet Potato Biscuits

Servings 15


  • 2 cup flour; white, whole wheat or half and half.
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 4 tbsp cold butter or vegetable spread, such as Earth Balance
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a medium sized bowl.
  3. Cut the butter or vegetable spread into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter, knives or a food processor.
  4. Mix together the sweet potato, milk, and maple syrup or honey.
  5. Combine the flour and sweet potato mixture and stir together with a fork just until the mixture comes together.
  6. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead lightly until the dough is fairly smooth, using more flour if the dough is too sticky. Don’t over-knead since that will make a tough biscuit.
  7. Pat the dough out to a thickness of about ½ inch.
  8. Cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter or small glass.
  9. Bake 15 minutes or until just golden brown. Serve hot!
