Sweet Potato Biscuits with Honey Herbed Butter


Thanks to my friend, Joanne, I made the best biscuits for Easter dinner! Joanne found this Best Sweet Potato Biscuits recipe from momontimeout.com, and made them while we were down the Jersey shore a week before Easter! Boy were they good! And the best part was, the recipe calls for melted butter and the batter is so easy to roll out! And they still come out flaky and sweet!

Who would have thought to put sweet potatoes in a biscuit batter? They come out with this beautiful orange color, and when you bite into them, you know there’s a sweeter taste than traditional biscuits, and the texture is just a little softer, too! Ingredients are simple with flour, melted butter, baking powder and soda, a little sugar (I added some honey, too), buttermilk, and mashed sweet potatoes. I bake my sweet potatoes by washing them and patting them dry, then rubbing them with my blended oil seasoning (or just a little olive oil, kosher salt and black pepper), and putting them directly on the oven rack, baking at 400° for one hour. They come caramelized and so sweet, tasting just like candy!

Once all your ingredients are mixed together, you just turn the dough onto a floured board, and the dough rolls out so easily! At about 3/4 – 1 inch thick, just use a biscuit cutter or glass from your cabinet to cut out the biscuits! And I made a honey, herbed butter to go with it, and it was a hit!

Until next time,
