    This recipe is from Southern Living's 1993 Hall of Fame. It makes a huge batch of biscuits, but you can store the unbaked biscuits in the freezer up to a month.

      I have made these several time in the past, usually preparing them smaller to serve with pork tenderloin as a hearty appetizer. Yesterday (Thanksgiving) I made them jumbo size and substituted fresh pumpkin puree for the sweet potato puree. They were so good; everyone raved about them. When I have made yeast rolls in the past, they usually turn out too dense. But these are very light and resemble the yeast rolls served in several chain restaurants.<br/><br/>This recipe makes A LOT! I think I baked about 50 x-large biscuits out of the dough. You could easily half the recipe and still have plenty for a dinner party.
