These are great! I halved the recipe, and it made 19 cut with a 2 1/4 inch glass. I had in my freezer some sweet potato/carrot puree (used for sneaky chef recipes), so that was a great stand in. The kids love these, and they are way healthier than standard tea biscuits, with the buttermilk, sweet potatoes and butter instead of shortening. Served with roast lemon/oregano chicken, but most of them were gone as appetizers while we were waiting for the chicken to finish. Thanks for a perfect recipe! Will definitely make these again.
