Sweet potato-rosemary biscuits

Yields 10 biscuits


  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled, cubed and cooked until tender, then mashed
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose baking flour, plus extra
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 1/3 cup cold milk
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into cubes, plus 1 tablespoon, melted


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and rosemary.
  3. Add the cubed butter to the dry ingredients and, using a pastry blender, combine until crumbly. There should be small chunks of butter throughout.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the mashed sweet potato with the milk until smooth.
  5. Add the sweet potato mixture to the dry mixture and gently knead until a dough forms.
  6. Dust a flat work surface with flour and roll the dough into a one-inch-thick circle.
  7. Use a biscuit cutter or a cookie cutter (about two inches wide) and cut out the biscuits.
  8. Place on parchment-lined baking sheets, about two inches apart. Brush the tops with the extra melted butter.
  9. Bake for five minutes, then rotate the pans and cook for another five to seven minutes, or until biscuits are golden.
