We thought this was great. I made it with the kids over the weekend, and they had so much fun working with the mashed yam. I didn't know what's "creamed honey", so i just used regular honey, and it worked out fine. thank you for the recipe!

I choose to make these out of all the honey biscuits for the fact it has a vegetable in it, which is always good for you! These were yummy even before they were baked in the oven Although expected them to be more crunchyonce done, Still yummy though. I didnt know how to cut the mix with the knives so i rubbed the mixture with my hands & also substituted the creamed honey for regular honey as we'd just bought a big bucket from our local honey man TY for this recipe Julesong my 1 year old will love these!

These are delicious!! I made them to accompany corn on the cob and my husband's ribs. They were perfect! I, too, used regular honey, and it turned out great. I also used whole wheat flour, which was yummy. Thanks for the recipe!
