Hands-on time: 20 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes
Yields: Makes about 2 dozen


1 1/2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes

1 cup buttermilk

6 tablespoons butter, melted

2 tablespoons sugar

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

3 1/3 cups self-rising flour, divided

Vegetable cooking spray

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 400°. Stir first 3 ingredients together in a large bowl. Add sugar, baking soda, and 3 cups flour, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8 to 10 times, adding up to 1/3 cup more flour to prevent dough from sticking. Roll dough to 3/4 inch thick; cut with a 2-inch round cutter. Place biscuits on a lightly greased (with cooking spray) baking sheet.

Bake at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
