Sweet Potato Biscuits

I rolled these out too thin so they weren't much like a biscuit but they were tasty anyhow.

Sweet Potato Biscuits

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 heaping Tb sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup mashed, cooked sweet potatoes
1/4 cup softened butter
2 to 4 Tb milk (depending on the moisture of the potatoes)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a seperate large bowl, mix the sweet potatoes and butter. Add the flour mixture to the potato mixture and mix to make a soft dough. Then add milk a tablespoon at a time to mixture and continue to cut in. (Not sure what this means. I just added a tablespoon at a time until it seemed right!) Turn the dough out onto a floured board and toss lightly until the outside of the dough looks smooth. Roll the dough out to a 1/2 inch thick and cut with a biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits on a greased pan and coat tops with melted butter. Bake for about 15 minutes.
