sweet-potato biscuits
 
makes 8; prep time: 25 minutes; total time: 1 hour 20 minutes 
 
1-3/4 cup  all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp  light-brown sugar
2-1/2 tsp  baking powder
1 tsp  salt
1/2 tsp  baking soda
6 Tbsp  chilled unsalted butter
3/4 cup  chilled sweet potato puree (see recipe below)
1/3 cup  buttermilk
 
making the dough 
in a large bowl, whisk together 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, 2 
tablespoons light-brown sugar, 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 
teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. with a pastry blender or 
two knives, cut in 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into 
pieces, until mixture resembles coarse meal, with some pea-size lumps 
of butter remaining. in a small bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup chilled 
sweet potato puree and 1/3 cup buttermilk; stir quickly into flour 
mixture until combined (do not overmix). 
 
shaping the biscuits 
turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and knead very gently 
until dough comes together but is still slightly lumpy, five or six 
times. (if dough is too sticky, work in up to 1/4 cup additional 
flour.) shape into a disk, and pat to an even 1-inch thickness. with a 
floured 2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits as close together as 
possible. gather together scraps, and repeat to cut out more biscuits 
(do not reuse scraps more than once). 
 
baking the biscuits 
preheat oven to 425 , with rack on lower shelf. butter an 8-inch cake 
pan. arrange biscuits snugly in pan (to help them stay upright). brush 
with 1/2 tablespoon melted butter. bake until golden, rotating once, 
20 to 24 minutes. 
 
 
 
sweet-potato puree 
 
serves 4; prep time: 10 minutes; total time: 30 minutes 
 
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks 
maple-butter, orange-ginger, or lime-cayenne flavoring (optional) 
coarse salt and ground pepper 
 
in a large saucepan, cover potatoes with water. bring to a boil; 
cook until tender when pierced with the tip of a paring knife, 15 to 
20 minutes. drain potatoes; puree in food processor. 
add flavorings, if desired; puree. for maple-butter: add 2 
tablespoons each melted butter and maple syrup; serve puree with more 
butter and syrup. for orange-ginger: add 1/4 cup each milk and orange 
juice, 2 tablespoons melted butter, and 2 teaspoons minced fresh 
ginger. for lime-cayenne: add 1 tablespoon lime juice and a pinch of 
cayenne; thin with a bit of cooking liquid, if needed. 
season with salt and pepper.
