These are SO delicious! The recipe is for plain sweet potato biscuits, but I used a heart cookie cutter to shape them in honor of Valentine's Day. I ate way too many :)
Sweet Potato Biscuits (recipe from here)
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/4 cup butter
- 3 tablespoons shortening
- 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl. Cut in 1/4 cup butter and the shortening with a pastry blender or forks until mixture is crumbly. Add mashed sweet potato and milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead just a few times.
Roll dough out to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet and brush with the melted butter. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes, or until nicely browned.
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
