Sweet Potato Biscuits
Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter and shortening until well blended.
Add sweet potatoes and enough buttermilk to make a soft dough.
Lightly knead dough about 20 times. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/2 inch thickness.
Use a 2 inch biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits. Bake on an ungreased baking sheet, 12 to 15 minutes or until biscuits are light golden brown. Serve warm.
Yield: about 2 dozen biscuits.
