    I added to the (doubled) recipe: 1/2 t. Cinnamon, 1/4t. of nutmeg & substituted brown sugar for white (I was about 1/3c. short on sweet potato, used 2 whole that I roasted in the oven, skin on for 1 hour). Then, I was running short on time so.... I combined the wet ingredients in the food processor, added the dry & let rest for about an hour. Then used a medium scoop & placed on greased parchment paper on a jelly roll pan. Baking a time was too long, some had black bottoms. These were FABULOUS! Served with butter & honey. They would make fabulous mini ham sandwiches! Double recipe yielded about 18 biscuits & they went fast. Thanks for sharing, I will be making these again.

    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!
