Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe @pinch

These sweet potato biscuits are fluffy, flaky, and filled with fall spices. They have a subtle sweetness that is perfectly balanced with a hint of warm spices. If you don't want to microwave the fresh sweet potatoes, roast them in a 400 degree oven for about an hour. They'd be a great alternative to regular dinner rolls for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Fall is upon us, and what can be better than the smell of a sweet potato biscuit baking in the oven? Mix sorghum molasses with butter (or honey with butter) and apply liberally! These are great with country ham.
