  • Whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, pepper, baking soda, and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Cut butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir sweet potatoes and cream into the flour mixture until the dough is soft.

  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface; knead the dough, turning over about 5 times. Roll to about 1/2-inch thick. Cut 2-inch circles out of dough and arrange on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.

I liked the taste but for me it needed a lot more pepper. I use fresh cracked rainbow peppercorn Read More

Added more pepper and also cracked some on the tops before they went in the oven. Didn't rise much...maybe I need some new baking powder? But the flavour and texture was awesome and will make again! Bisquits were so tasty the next day! Read More

Delicious light sweet biscuits. Would add more pepper next time as the pepper flavour was very mild. Read More

These taste good but they're sure dry and crumbly. Good for dunking in soup but not so good for a ham sandwich which was the intended purpose when I made them. Read More
