Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe

Ingredients

Sweet Potato Biscuits for 4 persons

Makes 8 Biscuits

  • 1 medium sweet potato (about 5 oz)
  • 1 1/4 cups whole-wheat biscuit mix
  • 2 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk
  • 1/4 teaspoons ground allspice

Preparation

Wrap sweet potato in a paper towel. Microwave on high until soft, 4 minutes. Scoop flesh into a bowl and mash; set aside. Heat oven to 400°. Place biscuit mix and butter in a bowl; rub butter into mix with fingertips until large pea-sized crumbs form. Add sweet potato, buttermilk and allspice; mix until just combined. Transfer dough onto a cookie sheet and form into a 12″ x 4″ rectangle. Cut into 8 rectangles with a serrated knife and separate slightly. Bake until biscuits are firm to the touch, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Once cool, store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
