Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Potato Drop Biscuits

2 small sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
3 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1 c flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tbsp water

Recipe Directions for Sweet Potato Drop Biscuits

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Roast the sweet potatoes until tender, then mash. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the mashed sweet potatoes, oil, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and salt. Sift in the flour, baking powder, and nutmeg.

  3. Fold the flour into the sweet potato mixture with a wooden spoon until the dry ingredients are moistened and crumbly; be careful not to overmix. Add water by the tablespoon and lightly knead five or six times until the dough holds together, adding extra water if needed. Don't knead too much or it will toughen the biscuits.

  4. Drop the dough in golf ball-size pieces onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the tops are lightly browned and firm to the touch.
