Golden Honey Yam Biscuits
A recipe from the Sneaky Kitchen
1 lg. or 2 med. sweet potatoes, or 3/4 C. leftover
2 C. self rising flour
2 Tbsp. ground flax seed
3 Tbsp. margarine or butter (not reduced calorie)
grated peel of one orange
grated peel of one lemon
1/4 C. honey
1/4 to 1/2 C. milk (approximately)
more flour for your work surface
If sweet potato is raw, nuke it in the microwave for about 4 min.
until tender. Set aside to cool, then scrape out of the skin. Measure 3/4
C. of pulp. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet
or biscuit pan with cooking spray.
Place flour in food processor or lg. bowl. Add shortening,
& mix well. Mash 3/4 cup sweet potato with the orange & lemon peel & the
honey. Add to flour. Mix with fork or if using a food processor, mix
with a few short bursts until dough just starts to form a mass. Do not over-mix.
Add just enough milk to make a soft but not
sticky dough, stirring with a fork gently. Turn out onto a floured board & knead
3 to 4 times. Pat to a 1"
thickness & cut out into approximately 2 1/4" rounds. Place in
pan. Spray tops
with cooking spray. Bake for 15 to 19 min. until lightly browned.
