What You'll Need

  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted margarine, cut into pieces, plus 1 tablespoon melted, divided
  • 3/4 cup sweet potato filling
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; mix well.
  3. Using a pastry blender or your hands, cut margarine pieces into flour mixture until crumbly. Stir in sweet potato and buttermilk; mix just until combined.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough until it holds together. Pat dough into a 1/2-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch round biscuit cutter, cut out a few biscuits and place in baking sheet. Repeat process until all dough is used. Brush biscuits with melted margarine.
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.
