    These are really yummy and easy to make. They have a naturally sweet taste from the potatoes so you don't even need to put anything on them! They're fantastic and great way to welcome fall. These are also a great way to sneak the vegetables to the kid's. : )

    These were ok but I would rather make something else. The Nutty Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe is the best!!! Its on the TOH website.

    These biscuits were a great change of pace. I added 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and about 4 tsp of sugar too.
