Sweet Potato Biscuits

February 3, 2014Teresa

Sweet Potato Biscuits are heavenly, indeed. Each mouthful practically melts-in-your-mouth! This wonderful Paula Deen recipe is so scrumptious to the taste buds. It’s not overly difficult to make either, as far as biscuits go. I made Sweet Potato Biscuits as a side for Taco Soup. These great tasting biscuits can just as easily be made for a nice country breakfast, or as a side with salad for lunch.

Let me share one thing I did with this recipe. I rolled the dough out to about an inch to an inch-and-a-half thickness before cutting with a biscuit cutter. That allowed the biscuits to raise to a nice depth of two to three inches, rather than having flat, tough biscuits. There weren’t quite as many biscuits this way. But we prefer thick biscuits rather than flat ones that barely raise.

This is a fantastic Sweet Potato Biscuit recipe. Certainly the best one I’ve ever tried.  Consider making up this marvelous Paula Deen recipe with my changes the next time you bake biscuits. I think you will be quite pleased with the result.

I rolled out my biscuit dough to about 1-inch to 1 1/2-inch thickness. That way, the biscuits raised up nice and high. We prefer our biscuits to have this type of depth rather than being flat and tough.

Serve with butter alone. Or add honey, apple butter or preserves of your choice.

Stir together UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (bleached flour toughens baked goods), sugar, salt and baking powder. (I doubled the original recipe so ingredients will be more than recipe amounts).

Bake or boil potatoes. Mash with a potato masher. Then add softened butter and work butter into mashed potatoes until all the butter has dissolved.

Add enough milk to make the dough of the right consistency. I added the lowest quantity of milk.

Place dough on a floured surface. Work flour into dough and knead very lightly working flour into the dough for about a minute or so.

Here I’m working the dough, pulling the dough toward me with one hand and pushing back with the other.

I actually didn’t roll out the dough. I shaped it just like this with my hands as I was kneading it. Cut biscuits with a biscuit cutter or glass.

Spray a glass baking dish with cooking spray. Place biscuits in prepared baking dish. Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter. Bake at 450 for about 15-20 minutes or until done. Because my biscuits were so thick to begin with, mine took 22 minutes to cook thoroughly.
