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.
