Sweet Potato Rounds

14 biscuits
15 Min
13 Min

These buttery biscuits are great for breakfast or dinner, and we especially like them as holiday cocktail biscuits-just tuck a few slivers of baked ham and a spoonful of cranberry sauce into each one before baking. If you want to make these biscuits slightly smaller, use a smaller cutter and remember to bake a minute or two less.

What You'll Need

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can cooked mashed sweet potato
  • 1 cup buttermilk

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender until crumbly.
  2. Combine 1 cup sweet potato and buttermilk; add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. (Reserve remaining sweet potato for another use.)
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times. Pat or roll dough to 3/4-inch thickness; cut dough with a 2-3/4-inch round cutter, and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake 13 minutes or until edges are golden.
