Sweet Potato Biscuits
Heat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, sift first 4 ingredients.Advertisement
Using your hands, rub butter cubes into flour until pea-sized pieces form. Whisk sweet potato puree and buttermilk, then add to flour-butter mixture. Combine with a fork until just blended and turn onto a lightly floured surface.
Knead dough 1 minute and roll to 1/2-inch thickness. (Do not overwork or biscuits will be tough.) Use a 2 1/2-inch-round biscuit cutter and cut 16 circles, re-rolling dough scraps as necessary. On 2 baking sheets, place dough circles 2 inches apart.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until just beginning to brown.
