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!
