Sweet Potato Biscuits

With less than 24 hours to go before the big gift opening bonanza, I wanted to post these golden sweet potato biscuits that were made for this year’s vegan/vegetarian “no turkey, all sides” Thanksgiving. The recipe I followed can be found (here). I ended up using regular whole wheat flour and olive oil instead of the recipe’s pastry flour and avocado oil. Apparently, the 24-hour Kroger in Fort Wayne, Indiana does not carry avocado oil. Nevertheless, these biscuits turned out great! If you prefer, canned pumpkin can be easily substituted in for the mashed cooked sweet potato. Just a suggestion: these biscuits are even more delicious with honey butter. Now, I’m off to watch 24 hours of “A Christmas Story” on TBS!

    Whoa, those biscuits look wonderful!! Just made 2 sweet potato pies and happen to have some pureed sweet potato left, will check out the recipe and see if I have enough left to make these. Happy Holidays and I can’t wait until 8PM so I too can watch A Christmas Story for 24 hours. Love that movie!!

    What a great idea for sweet potatoes! I just made my first sweet potato pie to use some up and am excited to have other ideas. Glad that the whole wheat flour worked too, since I sometimes agonize over substituting this!

    Hope your Christmas was great!

    Serendipity! I just happen to have some left over baked sweet potato that I was wondering what to do with. No avocado oil, so olive will have to do for me as well. They look yummy!🙂
