Sweet Potato Biscuits

Don't these sound amazing?  I recently had a yam biscuit that a patient had made for us.  A little searching around and I found this recipe for Sweet Potato Biscuits.  After reading the reviews, I made a few tweaks.  They came out great and are the perfect compliment to a big bowl of soup.

Sweet Potato Biscuits

1 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
2 TBS of sugar
4 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
2 TBS of fresh thyme leaves, chopped
1 cup of cooked sweet potato
1/4 cup of butter plus 1 TBS, room temperature
3 TBS of milk

In a small bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Stir in the thyme leaves.  Cream together the sweet potato and 1/4 cup of butter.  Slowly add in the flour mixture, alternating with 1 TBS of milk.  Once the mixture is combined, turn out onto a well-floured board.  Knead a few times to make sure everything is combined well.  Pat out to about 1/2" thick.  Cut into about 12 biscuits.  Brush each butter with melted butter.  Bake at 425 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.  Enjoy!


  1. oh my gosh, i love sweet potato biscuits! these look so soft and delicious!

  2. We are so on the same wavelength! I mad sweet potato biscuits last week. Then I spent three more batches trying to make them gluten-free. No success yet! But I have a ton of GF sweet potato bread crumbs now!
