TWD - Sweet Potato Biscuits

Alright, we're back! Man, let me tell you, these biscuits, scones, little bread-type-sweet-potato-thingies, whatever you want to call them, are well worth the wait! A little cinnamon, a little nutmeg, a grating of tonka bean just for fun, a cup-a sweet potatoes and a bit of buttermilk to help the process along, a sprinkling of coarse sugar for texture and about 25 minutes later these beauties come out of the oven fluffy, puffy and golden. Just a whiff of their sweet-savory aroma will make you want to put on a warm wool sweater, a comfy pair of boots and go walking in the crunchy fall leaves.

Thank you Erin, aka Prudence Pennywise, what a great choice of recipe! Please visit Erin's blog for the Sweet Potato Biscuits recipe (as a bonus, she also has a Sweet Potato Roll recipe in the same post. Score!). And have a look at the rest of the Tuesdays with Dorie blogroll, you never know what tasty variations you'll find each week!

love the thought of the course sugar on them. That wounds like it would add just the right tough of texture to them. :)

These look great! Mine were more on the flat side, still good though! I guess I'm not an expert biscuit-maker. The photos are fantastic - really captures the texture of them - well done!
