Reviews forColorful Sweet Potato Biscuits
"I made this biscuit for older cooks and they raved on texture and tasted. I also am at 7,000 feet elevation."
"I wondered if the amount of milk was correct, as the dough was extremely soft and moist. I had to knead in quite a bit of flour before I could get a dough that would actually roll out. The problem may have been that I substituted mashed pumpkin for sweet potatoes, but I wouldn't think that made a difference.I added 1 tsp. additional sugar and 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice. We enjoyed these very much and I will definitely make them again."
"I made drop biscuits instead of rolling them out and cutting with a biscuit cutter. They still turned out tasty. Perfect with honey butter."
