Sweet potato Biscuit Recipe

As a teenager, I use to dream of opening a restaurant which would feature the sweet potato prominently on the menu.  My family made sweet potato jacks which is an empanada filled with sweet potato, sweet potato pie and sweet potato biscuits.  This  Sweet potato Biscuit Recipe is from my paternal family side – MCCN Editor, Crystal Johnson

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (325 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 cup (113 grams) coldunsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 medium size sweet potato boil until soft.  Then let cool
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Instructions:

Mix dry ingredients with butter into mixer.  Use a dough hook.  As it mixes it will begin to build into a ball.   Add sweet potato and egg little by little.   Flour the surface you are going to use then use rolling pin over your dough mixture.   Use biscuit cutter, round cookie cutter or mouth of a glass to cut biscuits.  Place in pan and cook at 400 degrees for about 10 to 15 minutes.
