Calories 74 kcal


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tablespoons butter frozen for at least 2 hours
  • 1 cup cooked, mashed sweet potatoes (about 1 large sweet potato) processed in food processor or mashed with potato masher
  • ½ cup milk


  • Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and sugar in a bowl.
  • Grate butter into dry ingredients, tossing as you go.
  • Add sweet potatoes and milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface, kneading 4 or 5 times.
  • Roll dough to ½ inch thickness; cut with 2-2.5 inch biscuit cutter.
  • Place on lightly greased baking sheet or parchment paper.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 14-15 minutes in traditional oven or at 350 in convection oven for 12-13 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Brush with melted butter, if desired.


The yield will depend on the size of your biscuit cutter. I got 18 with a 2 inch cutter, but you'll only get 12-14 if you use a 2.5 cutter.
