These combine two of my favorite things: biscuits and sweet potatoes. Very moist and flavorful and so easy to make, especially if you already have one lonely leftover sweet potato laying around. I recommend doubling this recipe for a family.

Sweet Potato Biscuits
makes 8-10 biscuits

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
dash ground nutmeg
1/2 cup cooked, mashed sweet potato
1/3 cup milk
3 T. oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in a medium bowl. In another bowl, combine the sweet potato, milk and oil. Add potato mixture to the flour and stir just until blended. Turn out onto a floured surface and pat into a rectangle. Cut into 8-10 squares/rectangles and place biscuits on a baking sheet, a little bit apart. Bake for 11-14 minutes or until bottoms are browned and the biscuits spring back when pressed gently.

These did not rise, and were a bit tough.
Do I use pstry flour?

Diane–So sorry these didn’t rise. I don’t use pastry flour, but that would probably make for a lighter result. Here are some tips that might help: http://www.bonappetit.com/tipstools/tips/2008/04/shortcakes_and_biscuits_tips
I’m sure you did everything right–sometimes the biscuit gremlins are just in a naughty mood.
