Recipe by Queen Puff

These are delicious anytime, but most especially with Thanksgiving dinner. This is a recipe I hand wrote so many years ago I can't remember who gave it to me, but these sweet potato biscuits are very good.

I have searched several sites for sweet potato biscuits and most very ordinary and disappointing - so glad I continued my search because these are superior.
