Sweet Potato Biscuits

1 pound (about 4) sweet potatoes

2 cups all-purpose flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

2 Tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

teaspoon cayenne pepper

8 Tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter

( I used half soy margarine)

cup milk

1/ Heat oven to 400. wash the sweet potatoes and prick all over with a fork.

Place on a baking sheet; bake until soft, about 1 hour. When cool enough to handle, scoop out flesh and press through a sieve (you should have 1 cups puree) Set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.

3.In another bowl, whisk together milk and sweet-potato puree. Add to dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

4. Place dough on lightly floured board, knead once ore twice, and pat out to inch thick. I just sliced them into square shapes. Bake on cookie sheet (with parchment paper if possible) for about 20 minutes until golden brown.
