Sweet Potato Biscuits 3

1 cp Flour

1 tbs baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3 tbs butter, melted and slightly cooled (may substitute shortening, vegetable oil, or, if a disciple of the Evil One, margarine)

1 cp cooked, mashed sweet potatoes (may used cooked canned sweet potatoes)

Approx. 1/4 cp milk

Combine dry ingredients.

Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.

Add sweet potatoes and mix well.

Add milk gradually to make soft dough.

Turn out dough on floured board and knead until reaches biscuit consistenly. Add flour if needed.

Roll out dough and cut out with biscuit cutter (a juice glass works just fine).

Place on lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 450 F for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown on bottom of biscuits.

Makes approx. 12 biscuits.

    What about using leftover baked sweet potatoes, or yams?

    Make candied sweet potatoes out of them.

    Or just put them in a greased casserole or Corning Ware, sprinkle them with brown sugar and nutmeg, and bake.

    Nobody here eats candied sweet potatoes. We do eat them baked, however. Neither of my animals like really sweet food. Hence the possiblity of leftover baked.
