Recipe by Sydney Mike
READY IN: 1hr 30mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, then generously butter a baking sheet.
  • Wrap sweet potatoes in foil in a single package & bake until tender, about 1 hour, then remove from the oven, unwrap & set on a wire rack to cool somewhat. Raise oven temperature to 425 degrees F.
  • When potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel & mash them, so that you have 1 cup of puree.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, nutmeg & salt, then stir in the pepper before adding the butter. Cut in the butter, combining & mixing until coarsely crumbled.
  • Make a well in the center & add the cup of mashed sweet potatoes, stirring together gently with a fork, then stir in enough cream to make a sticky but manageable dough.
  • Transfer the dough to a floured surface & pat or roll to a thickness of 3/4 inch. Use a floured 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter to cut out rounds of the dough, & transfer them to the prepared baking sheet. Re-roll the dough as necessary, until the dough is used up.
  • Lightly brush the tops of the biscuits with the beaten egg, then bake until the biscuits are golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  • Serve hot, with butter & ENJOY!
