How to make Sweet Potato Biscuits

18 Biscuits


  • 3 cups all-purpose fl our
  • 2 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄2 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into 1⁄2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup mashed cooked sweet potato
  • 1⁄2 cup whole buttermilk

Preparation Method

Preheat oven to 450°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. In a small bowl, whisk together sweet potato and buttermilk. Stir sweet potato mixture into fl our mixture just until combined (dough will be sticky).

Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 5 times. Roll dough to 3⁄4-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch round cutter, cut dough, and place on prepared pan, gently rerolling scraps to use all dough.

Bake until lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Serve immediately.
