June 15, 2017

1 ¼ Cups Flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon kosher salt
3 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoons cumin
1 jalapeno seeded and minced
1 Tablespoon minced cilantro
1 cup cooked mashed sweet potato
¼ Cup softened butter
2 to 4 tablespoons milk (if needed for moisture)

*Preheat oven to 450 degrees F

Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. In a separate bowl add sweet potatoes, butter, jalapeno, and cilantro mix together. Season with smoked paprika and cumin. Add flour mixture and gently mix dough together. Add milk if needed for moisture. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and lightly knead into a smooth ball. Roll dough out to ½ inch thick and cut with biscuit cutter.

Place biscuits on a parchment line cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes.


If you don’t have a biscuit cutter and short juice glass works just fine.
