Sweet Potato Biscuits 

Tea biscuits, two or three bite sized portions, are essential southern staples when entertaining. Guests tend to clamour for them when spotted on a beautiful assortment of party foods as it indicates they were more than likely baked from scratch. Sweet Potato Biscuits are versatile as they may be offered for early morning gatherings & well into the evening. If you are in need of a refresher on how to make authentic southern style biscuits, look to Baking Classics: Buttermilk Biscuits for my detailed tutorial which includes photos, instructions & pointers on how to make your very best to date. The sweet potato adds nutritional value, pretty color & good taste to this particular recipe. Fill the biscuits with ham, grilled pork tenderloin or replace the standard & serve them with miniature bites of crisp fried chicken. Plan to win big with these tasty gems.

The Basic Fundamentals 

 Pierce the sweet potato several times with a fork, place on a foil-lined half sheet pan & bake at 400 degrees 1 hour & 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft when lightly pressed. 

2 cups all purpose flour
2 Tbsp dark brown sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
2/3 cups whole milk
2/3 cups baked & mashed sweet potato {about 8-oz}
Melted butter

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Whisk together the flour, the brown sugar, the baking powder & the salt in a large bowl. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry blender until it resembles the size of small peas. Stir together the sweet potato & the milk; fold into the flour mixture just until a sticky dough comes together.

Turn the dough out onto a heavily floured surface & knead 2 to 3 times. Pat the dough to 1/2-inch thickness & portion with a 1 5/8-inch round cutter. Place on a lightly greased half sheet pan 1/4-inch apart. Reroll the dough & repeat. Place in the oven, & reduce the temperature to 400 degrees. Bake on the middle oven rack 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with melted butter.

The Extra Point

Simple bacon, eggs & grits make a delicious accompaniment to the biscuits for Sunday brunch.

How To Make Entertaining Biscuits

Southerners have long been known for offering biscuits to guests when grand or small gatherings are in order. They can either bridge a lavish meal of beef tenderloin & holiday cocktail nibbles or accompany classic brunch favorites when spring celebrations are planned. Tailgating & football socials make them a natural fit for menus as they can accompany main dishes or be filled with a variety of mainstays.
