Sweet Potato Drop Biscuits

1 cup mashed baked sweet potato, peeled
2/3 cup milk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Grease a baking sheet and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together the sweet potato, milk and butter.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.

Gently mix the dry ingredients into the sweet potato mixture to form a soft dough, being careful not to overmix.

Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a deep golden orange tinged with brown.

Serve warm or let cool on a wire rack.

Makes 10 good-size biscuits.
