I also tweaked to fit my gluten free- dairy free needs- my daughter loved them. I used a GF flour, rice milk, and ghee butter- considering all the changes, it is still a keeper. I can only imagine how good the original version is!

I used almond meal instead of corn meal; and used 1 cup regular flour and 1 cup gluten-free flour. Delicious recipe. Thanks, DeLynne, for sharing this recipe.

Kids loved them even though they don't like sweet potatoes.

Delicious. I could have eaten the whole batch. First time I've ever made any type of homemade biscuit.

I have made these a few times and they are delicious. I often interchange the sweet potatoes for squash or pumpkin with equally good results.

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.
