  • 1 cups - all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoons - baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons - salt
  • 2 tablespoons - butter or margarine, generous tablespoons
  • 1 cups - mashed sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons - to 4 tablespoons cold milk
  • Directions:

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

    In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Rub in the butter, using fingertips.

    Add sweet potatoes. Then add enough milk to make a soft dough.

    Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead about 30 seconds. Don't overwork the dough. Pat dough lightly into a rectangle 1/2-inch thick. Cut with a floured biscuit cutter, about 2-1/2 inches in diameter.

    Place biscuits on prepared baking sheet. Bake until well-risen and lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
