TWD: sweet potato biscuits

October 20, 2009


Do you love sweet potatoes?  I never did.  That is, until one day when I was given a baked sweet potato with a little butter, salt and pepper.  That’s all.  Then I loved sweet potatoes.

Until that day the only sweet potatoes I was every served were doused in brown sugar and marshmallows.  Not that brown sugar and marshmallows are a bad thing.  I just don’t like them in my sweet potatoes.

So while I waited until an embarrassingly late age to realize that sweet potatoes can be served without all the added sweet, I now adore the things.  So I was super excited when Erin of Prudence Pennywise chose the sweet potato biscuits for Tuesdays with Dorie! These were not the huge uber-fluffy biscuits we have become accostomed to, rather they are smaller but still light feeling and packed with sweet potato flavor!  I liked mine with a little butter and honey.

You can head on over to Prudence Pennywise for the recipe or buy the book

    I”m glad you enjoyed these. They are a little different take on biscuits but quite tasty.
