Sweet Potato Biscuits

Breads & Desserts


1/3 cup cold butter or margarine
2 1/2 cups biscuit mix
1 cup canned, mashed sweet potato
1/2 cup milk


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut butter into biscuit mix with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Combine sweet potato and milk, and add to biscuit mix. Stir until blended. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to 3/4-inch thickness and cut with a round biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on a large, ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden.
