Sweet Potato Biscuits with Honey Butter

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.

Makes

15 biscuits (about 1/2 cup honey butter)

We often think of sweet potatoes in a supporting role as a side dish, mashed, baked whole, cubed and roasted. Here's another thought—why not give them a starring role for breakfast when made into biscuits? Served with cinnamon-honey butter, they're all kinds of awesome. —Cathy Bell, Joplin, Missouri

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • HONEY BUTTER:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine sweet potatoes and cream; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; gently knead 8-10 times.
  2. Pat or roll out to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Reroll and repeat once. Place 1 in. apart on a greased baking sheet.
  3. Bake at 400° for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat the butter, honey and cinnamon until blended. Serve with warm biscuits.
