A quest for the perfect sweet potato biscuit

My friend and coworker, Sylvia, asked me if I had a good recipe for sweet potato biscuits. I didn’t, but thought, “How hard could it be to find one?”

I made the these biscuits two weeks ago, but was disappointed because I expected more sweet potato flavor. The next week I tried a different recipe, which had more flavor but the biscuits were as hard and dense as hockey pucks.

I then realized that finding a recipe for a light flaky biscuit with great sweet potato flavor is going to be a lot harder than I thought. But, I’m not giving up! I’m not posting a recipe for sweet potato biscuits until I find one that fits the bill.

I have two more recipes to try, so be patient Sylvia. I’ll keep you posted.

Wish me luck!


  1. I'm glad you're not posting a great sweet potato recipe just yet, because I have no idea what wine would go well with these pupppys! :)

  2. Cyrhen. I know you will have the perfect wine when I find the perfect recipe. I have faith in you.
