A couple of months ago, I mentioned that I bought 6 pounds of sweet potatoes. I used a few of the camotes (sweet potatoes) to make Sweet Potato fries and other savory dishes. I steamed the rest of the camotes, scooped out the flesh and froze it in 1 cup portions.
I still have a couple of baggies of Sweet Potato puree set aside for making pie. But most of it has been used to make Sweet Potato Biscuits. They are so good! (Sigh!) Sweet Potato Biscuits are quickly becomming a family favorite.
Sweet Potato Biscuits
- 2 cups flour
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 cup sweet potato puree
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup milk
In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the sweet potato puree, brown sugar and melted butter until well combined..
Stir in the milk.
Add the flour mixture to the sweet potato mixture. Mix together until no flour is visible.
Place biscuits 1-inch apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet or baking pan. Bake at 400º F for about 15 minutes or until light golden brown.
