Goode & Gooseberry Project: Sweet Potato Biscuits- The Kids Cook Monday

You might be taking a double take on the title of this recipe- Sweet Potato Biscuits cause the be lookin' a lot more like cookies than biscuits...just sayin'

Rest assure this Goode & Gooseberry Project Recipe is indeed Sweet Potato Biscuits, we just used sprinkles instead of regular sugar to top them off when Miss Add and I were baking these up for The Kids Cook Monday ;)

Truth be told, this is our second attempt at theses awesome little biscuits... first time fell victim to an omission of baking powder...ahem ;)

So, this time with my baking powder firmly in hand, I boiled up a couple of sweet taters in my micro-cooker.

I heart my micro-cooker. 

Swoon ;)

Then I mashed them up :)

And took 1 cup sweet taters and added 1/3 cup milk

And sat aside

Then mixed 1 1/2 cups flour

1/4 t Cinnamon

1/4 t. Salt

And 1/8 t. of nutmeg

And mix 'er up

Then cut in 1/3 cup butter

And mix until crumbly

Now mix in your taters

And mix 'er up

Now yours will look a little different since you will have put 1 1/2 cups flour... at this point I didn't realize I had forgot 1/2 cup of flour...but fear not... I figured it out ;)

Right about here when I saw that "this ain't be happenin'"

1/2 cup of flour later and we are back on track ;)

Miss Add then grabbed her pumpkin cookie cutters and got to work

Then we placed them on a sprayed cookie sheet

We then grabbed sprinkles. I wish we would have had colored sugar, but sprinkles worked just fine.

Then I brushed each biscuit with milk

And Miss Add got to sprinkling

She likes her sprinkles...just sayin'

Then baked them up at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes

These sweet potato biscuits are a fun, healthier alternative to cookies with the same decorating fun!
