TWD - Sweet Potato Biscuits
How can I call them a failure when they tasted so good?
I love biscuits. I've made them many times, often with self-rising flour. Biscuits are a cinch. Yet -- when I added the freshly made and mashed sweet potatoes to the mix, the dough turned into a heavy, sticky mass that I knew wouldn't rise.
You know what they say, when life hands you flat disks of sweetness, make icing! That's exactly what I did. With a generous amount of cinnamon drizzle, these turned into a delicious dessert. The drizzle recipe was simply five parts icing sugar to one part cinnamon, with just enough warm milk to make a drizzle-able paste.
