How to make it

  • In a bowl, combine the flour and brown sugar.
  • Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • In another bowl, beat egg, then add sweet potatoes and milk.
  • Stir into flour mixture just until moistened.
  • Turn onto a floured board. Knead about 12 times or until smooth.
  • Roll dough to 1/2 -inch thickness.
  • Cut with a 2 1/2 -inch biscuit cutter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes or golden
  • Note: As a substitute for self-rising flour, place 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon of salt in a 2-cup measuring cup. Add enough all-purpose flour to total 1 1/2 cups.
