Sweet Potato Biscuits

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by ladypit

This is the yummy way we use up leftover sweet potatoes at my house. Often I'll bake sweet potato fries and have them leftover. I just put them in the food processor to puree them and then use them to make these. Prep time does not include sweet potato cooking time. Mine often have some pepper and salt in them because I had put them on the fries. But you can make these sweeter by adding 1/4 cup of sugar with the dry ingredients.

I thought these biscuits were great! Since we never have leftover sweet potatoes in our house, I used roasted butternut squash. I loved the biscuits with a bowl of hearty soup. I also like that the squash/sweet potato replaces a lot of the butter in the recipe, making it a somewhat healthier option. Perhaps a little more baking powder would help them rise. However, I'll enjoy these again!
