TWD - Sweet Potato Biscuits

This week's TWD was chosen by Erin of Prudence Pennywise and what I thought was going to be a dud actually turned out to be a hit! Surprise, surprise.

I think one of the best resources of TWD is the P&Q section on the website. I've learned to read all of the posts there before I ever start to bake. Those people save my ass every time!

This week's recipe was biscuits, which for me usually equals hockey pucks....suriously! But after reading the P&Q, I knew the most important things about this relatively simple recipe were #1...make sure the dough was moist. It may actually take more mashed sweet potatoes than called for. And #2....DON'T OVERWORK THE DOUGH! I think everyone mentioned this. So, I barely mixed it!!

And I guess it worked. While these didn't exactly puff up like I was expecting, they were anything but tough. I served them with tonights dinner to Charlotte and Mr. B along with some butter and honey. They loved them!

Another successful TWD!!

Make sure you visit Erin's site for the recipe.....or better yet....BUY THE BOOK.
