Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe

Sweet potato biscuits are probably one of the easiest types of bread to put together. You don’t need to be a fancy cook to prepare them, and no matter what they always taste delicious and turn out great.

Pro Tip: I once had a friend who owns a bakery tell me her secret to a good biscuit or scone. The secret is in the butter texture. You want to cut the butter into small cubes and then use a pastry cutter to have it turn into crumbles as you add it to the dough. I’ve been using this method ever since!

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • To mash up a sweet potato fast: Prick the outside of sweet potato with a fork in multiple places. Microwave for 6-7 minutes, then let cool. scrape out potato, and mash (I used an electric mixer with a tiny splash of milk, but you can also use a blender or hand masher).
  • In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the cubed butter to the bowl, and use a pastry blender to cut butter into small crumb-like texture. Add in the mashed sweet potato and milk. Mix until just combined (this is the key to a delicious biscuit).
  • Add dough to floured surface, and knead into a square or rectangle. Cut dough into squares. Place dough on baking sheet, and brush the tops with a bit of milk.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown.
