Soft Sweet Potato Biscuits

- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
- 4 to 5 tablespoons 2% milk
- In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening and sweet potatoes until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in enough milk just until dough clings together. Knead lightly on a floured surface.
- Roll dough to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-in. biscuit cutter and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
Editor's NoteAs a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.

Impressed. I’ve never had yam biscuits before. They were very moist and flavorful. My family really enjoyed them. I didn’t have self rising flour so I used the taste of home suggestion to use 3 T baking powder and 1 tsp salt along with the two cups of flour.

Wonderful way to use up leftover sweet potatoes. Came together very well and even my hubby liked them, when he does not like sweet potatoes at all. Will definitely make again.

I used mashed accorn squash instead of sweet potatoes. Came out perfect, the whole family loved them, even the grand kids.
