Sweet Potato Biscuits

My family loves biscuits. I often make them to accompany soup or chilli and they get gobbled up within one meal with few or no leftovers.

The one downside to biscuits is traditionally, they are not the healthiest of options. Today, I made some sweet potato muffins and I had some left over sweet potato.

Original Recipe

After a good old google search for recipes, I came up with one for Sweet Potato Biscuits by Paula Dean. These biscuits are very simple to make and they have the added health bonus of sweet potato!

Our Changes

Funny enough, as I am composing this post, I realized that I left out the milk out of these biscuits. I simply kneaded the dough for a few minutes until it became smooth! Next time, I will skip adding any salt all together and I also might leave out the milk on purpose!

Despite the fact that I left out the milk, these biscuits and moist and delicious! They are easy to make and have less butter in them than traditional biscuits that I often make, thanks to the moistness from the sweet potato. I will definitely be making these again!

    1. They really don't taste like sweet potatoes at all! Just a hint of sweetness to them and moist compared to traditional biscuits!
