Sweet Potato Biscuits

Truth be told, this wasn't made from Thanksgiving leftovers. I didn't make sweet potato this year, but so many people do that I thought it would be a good recipe to include in this series using Thanksgiving leftovers. I baked a sweet potato just for use in this recipe. I know, I know...I'm such a phony.

I found this recipe from Home Cooking Memories via Pinterest, and knew I needed to make them. Who doesn't love a warm biscuit slathered with butter? The kids also used them for peanut butter sandwiches and cheese sandwiches. These biscuits come together very quickly with the use of a food processor, and bake in just 10 minutes. We loved them, and they were a big hit with the kids too!

2 C flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
4 T butter, cut into chunks
1 C mashed sweet potato
1-4 T milk

Combine flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in food processor. Pulse to combine. Add butter, and pulse until you can't see any chunks of butter. Add mashed sweet potato and process until well combined. Add milk, one tablespoon at a time, pulsing well after each addition until it forms a ball of dough. (I found 3 tablespoons to be ideal.) On a well-floured surface, roll to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter or inverted glass. Place on a greased or silpat-lined baking sheet. Bake at 450` for 10 minutes, or until just lightly golden.
