Sweet Potato Biscuits

I made these the other night and they are WONDERFUL - soft, with a wonderful flavor and just a little bit of sweetness - not sweet like cake or cookies, but not plain like regular white biscuits.

This comes from The Gooseberry Patch Country Baking cookbook, which I received at the homeschool mom party (Thanks, Shelley!).

3/4 cup sweet potatoes, cooked, peeled, mashed and chilled
1 stick butter, melted and cooled
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup milk
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

In a large bowl, combine the sweet potatoes, butter and brown sugar.  Stir in the mil and blend until smooth.  Sift together dry ingredients and add to sweet potato mixture.  Turn dough onto a lightly floured counter and knead 2 minutes.  With floured rolling pin, roll dough until 1/2" thick.  Cut out with a 2" round cutter.  Place biscuits one inch apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet (I used parchment paper).  Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until light brown.  Makes about 1 1/2 dozen biscuits.

With 18 biscuits, I calculated the WW PointsPlus value (new program) at 3 points each - and well worth it!
