Crissi's Sweet Potato Biscuits

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"Yummy sweet potato biscuits that rival Steamer's biscuits in Chincoteague, Virginia. You'll taste no better than this! My family hates sweet potatoes, but they snatch these up every time I make them! You could also substitute pumpkin for the sweet potato and cardamom for the nutmeg."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, wheat germ, baking powder, and salt. Mix in butter, evaporated milk, sweet potatoes, milk, and nutmeg, stirring by hand until dough is smooth.
  3. On a lightly floured board, roll out the dough until it is about 1/2-inch thick. With a sharp knife, cut into 3-inch squares or diamonds. Place squares on greased baking sheet, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.

I found the dough to be gooey as well and had to add more flour. However, the taste is interesting and I am going to continue to play with this recipe.

My husband loved them, I thought they were just okay. I would have liked them to be a bit sweeter, but that's probably a result of the wheat germ.
