Recipe Ingredients for Delish's Sweet Potato Biscuits

1 tbsp Unsalted Butter
1 medium Sweetpotato
1 1/8 cup Lowfat Buttermilk
3 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
3 tsp unpacked Sugars, Brown
1/4 tsp Spices Cayenne Pepper

Recipe Directions for Delish's Sweet Potato Biscuits

  1. 1. Heat oven to 475 degrees F. Cut butter into small cubes and chill in freezer 15 minutes.

  2. 2. Place sweet potato in a microwave-proof dish with 3 tablespoons water, cover, and cook on high until very tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Mash and refrigerate to cool.

  3. 3. Stir in buttermilk. Stir dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Cut in butter using either a pastry blender, two knives, or your fingers until mixture resembles a coarse meal, working quickly to avoid warming butter.

  4. 4. Stir in sweet potato-buttermilk using a wooden spoon just until dough begins to form. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 3 to 4 turns to combine.

  5. 5. Pat dough into a 7- by 10-inch rectangle and cut out biscuits using a 3-inch cutter (gather together scraps until all dough has been used).

  6. 6. Place 2 inches apart on a baking pan and bake on top shelf of oven 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
