Is sounds great.
These were delicious! My son kept asking for the yellow rolls! :D
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome! These were so yummy. I served them for a special occasion and everyone wanted the recipe.
These were very good. I halved the recipe and got 8 buiscuits out of it. There is not an overpowering sweet potato flavor, so if you are looking for one, this is not the recipe to use.
I made this with Roasted chicken that was basted in an orange sauce. I added some orange zest to the biscuits and it complemented the meal perfectly.
