Buttermilk Sweet Potato Biscuits

warm biscuits now that the weather is starting to cool off. has anyone ever made these? they look so delish i cannot wait to try them :)

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
6 Tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup cold baked sweet potato, peeled
½ to 1 cup buttermilk, as needed

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Stir the flour, baking soda, baking powder and ½ teaspoon of salt with a fork in a mixing bowl. Drop in the butter and toss it in the flour, then cut it into pieces. Work the butter into the flour until it resembles oatmeal.

Whip the sweet potato with a fork until it’s very smooth. Then add it to the bowl. Work it in lightly but thoroughly with your fingers. Add ½ cup buttermilk and stir. Add just enough buttermilk to make a smooth and only slightly sticky dough.

Dump the dough onto a floured surface and knead it two or three times. Flatten it out to ½ inch thick. Cut out biscuits with a 2 ½ inch cutter. Put on a parchment covered baking sheet. Gather the scraps together, pat down, and cut out more biscuits.

Brush the biscuits with buttermilk and bake for about 15 minutes until well risen and appealingly brown. Serve hot.
