Top Review by Kate 8

Try as I might, I could not screw up this recipe! I was making a large batch for my office luncheon and thought I had 3 cups of sweet potatoes. Mixed the flour, salt and baking powder, then discovered I only had just 2 cups of sweet potatoes. Nothing to do but press forward. The biscuits were so light and fluffy! In addition, I misread the recipe and added 2 1/2 tsp (x3) of salt instead of baking powder. I recognized my error and fished out as much salt as I could, but the recipe tolerated a lot of salt! I used shortening as recommended. I will be serving them with candied bacon butter and they are YUM!
