Step 1

Preheat oven to 425. In a small bowl, mix together the sweet potato and milk until smooth. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the sweet potato mixture just until the dough begins to come together. (You may need to add a little extra milk if the dough is too dry, or a little extra flour if the dough is too wet. It should just barely come together)

Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead 2 or 3 times until the dough forms a rough ball. Be careful not to overwork. Pat the dough out into a circle that is about 3/4 of an inch thick. Cut the dough into biscuits, transferring them to a parchment lined baking sheet. Carefully re-roll the scraps and continue to cut biscuits.

Bake 12-13 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
