This recipe came from Farm Journal's Country Cookbook. I am planning on making these and some pumpkin biscuits this Sunday.

Wonderful! I made these with yams and hard margarine as the shortening. Because of their colour and richness, they taste like they are made with cheese! I didn't have a 2" press handy so I just free formed these and they still worked out great. This is a recipe I will make over and over. I'm thinking of adding some chopped chives and a dash of garlic next time! Thank you so much for sharing!!!
