You might be taking a double take on the title of this recipe- Sweet Potato Biscuits cause the be lookin’ a lot more like cookies than biscuits…just sayin’
Rest assure this Goode & Gooseberry Project Recipe is indeed Sweet Potato Biscuits, we just used sprinkles instead of regular sugar to top them off when Miss Add and I were baking these up for The Kids Cook Monday 😉
Truth be told, this is our second attempt at theses awesome little biscuits… first time fell victim to an omission of baking powder…ahem 😉
So, this time with my baking powder firmly in hand, I boiled up a couple of sweet taters in my micro-cooker.
I heart my micro-cooker.
Then I mashed them up 🙂
And took 1 cup sweet taters and added 1/3 cup milk
And sat aside
Then mixed 1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 t Cinnamon
1/4 t. Salt
And 1/8 t. of nutmeg
And mix ‘er up
Then cut in 1/3 cup butter
And mix until crumbly
Now mix in your taters
And mix ‘er up
Now yours will look a little different since you will have put 1 1/2 cups flour… at this point I didn’t realize I had forgot 1/2 cup of flour…but fear not… I figured it out 😉
Right about here when I saw that “this ain’t be happenin'”
1/2 cup of flour later and we are back on track 😉
Miss Add then grabbed her pumpkin cookie cutters and got to work
Then we placed them on a sprayed cookie sheet
We then grabbed sprinkles. I wish we would have had colored sugar, but sprinkles worked just fine.
Then I brushed each biscuit with milk
And Miss Add got to sprinkling
She likes her sprinkles…just sayin’
Then baked them up at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes
These sweet potato biscuits are a fun, healthier alternative to cookies with the same decorating fun!
