Sweet potato biscuits?

I’m sure you know that I have posted several recipes and videos for and about biscuits over the past couple of  years.

Here is one of my favorite YouTube cooks making a biscuit recipe for his Sunday “Old Cookbook Show”.

I’ve never heard of these, but based on their reaction, I would be glad to try them.


3 cups flour
6 teaspoons Rumford Baking Powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons shortening
1 cup mashed cooked sweet potato
About 1 cup milk

Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together, cut in the shortening, add the potatoes, then the milk gradually, and mix to a soft dough.

Turn onto a floured board and roll out one-half inch thick, cut into biscuits, place on a baking sheet and bake twelve to fifteen minutes in a hot oven.
