Sweet Potato Biscuits – can’t get much better..

biscuitServed piping hot, just plain or with butter melting on top, these ‘shore’ specialties can’t get much better.  Just dug sweet potatoes are plentiful here on Delmarva in the fall! If you’d like to try them ready-made, this coming Saturday beginning at 7 am at the Asbury United Methodist Church in Allen MD (a stone’s throw east of Rt. 13) these delectable specialties will be offered along with such other traditional local treats such as – beaten biscuits, chicken salad and oyster fritters.  If you miss it – you can still partake of this shore good treat – here’s the recipe!

Sweet Potato Biscuits (makes 12 large biscuits)

1 cup flour, 3 Tbls. Crisco or other shortening, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 cup sweet potatoes, boiled and mashed, 1/2 cup of milk, 4 tsp. baking powder.

Sift dry ingredients.  Beat melted shortening into potatoes.  Add milk.  Add dry ingredients into potato mixture and work dough until smooth.  Roll out to 1/2″ thickness on floured board.  Cut into rounds with biscuit cutter.  Brush tops with melted butter.  Bake on a greased pan in a hot oven 425 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes just till the tops are golden!

Variation – Some recipes say to ‘drop’ the dough by large spoonfuls onto baking sheet instead of the traditional rolling and cutting.  It’s up to YOU!
No matter the shape, ENJOY!
