Sweet Potato Biscuits

I made these for the first time this week and my family RAVED about them! They are great served with pork and wonderful right out of the oven with a cup of coffee! Thanks Kim!

Sweet Potato Biscuits

From the Kitchen of Kim Carper

  • 4 - 5 c. self-rising flour (start with 4 cups and add as needed)
  • 4 c. cooked and mashed sweet potatoes (if canned, drained)
  • 1 ½ c. butter-flavored Crisco
  • ½ c. granulated sugar
  • ½ c. light brown sugar
  • 3 tsp. cinnamon
  • Milk – if needed to moisten

Mix sweet potatoes, Crisco, sugars, and cinnamon.
Work in flour and knead until ingredients are blended. Add small amount of milk (1-2 tablespoons as needed) for lighter biscuits.
Pinch small amount of dough and roll into biscuits.
Roll ball of dough in flour as needed & pat flour onto hands to prevent sticking.
Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Serve hot with butter.

Makes about 35 biscuits
