Sweet Potato Biscuits

This is one of my favorite flavor combinations. I've been searching for a while for a good sweet potato biscuit recipe. I have found it! 

One of my favorite places for sweet potato biscuits closed a few years ago. It was an old family run business. I did a random search online for their recipe and surprise surprise, they had published it in the newspaper years ago (people used to do things like that a long time ago). 

I found it on Pinterest, where I don't have an account. So, I took a screenshot and zoomed in on the photo to read the recipe. 

I cut the sugar down by half a cup and cut the butter in half, but they still taste pretty spot on. The recipe made 36. 

We are eating them with ham tonight!! Ham was on sale for $0.77/lb. you can't beat that price for meat. I am proud of myself. I sliced and trimmed the whole ham today. Hams have a way of sitting in my refrigerator and not being used up because it seems so daunting to slice pieces off. But that is all finished now! I have a container of nice slices of ham and the bone is boiling on the stove. Hopefully, I will have time to turn the broth into some baked cheesy grits.   

The baby loves them. He's had three. Martin isn't quite sure what he thinks.

I am so glad you found this recipe because now I am going to use it! I LOVE sweet potatoe biscuits paired with ham. This post has me craving some sweet potatoe biscuits. You amaze me with your cooking abilities (especially while pregnant).
