TWD – Sweet Potato Biscuits (erm, cookies)


This will be a short(er) post than normal. I don’t have much to say regarding these biscuits. In a few words…

They didn’t rise.


SO I decided to market them as soft sweet potato cookies. I told the story and offered them to my coworkers and they were well received!! So,

I think my biscuits went south because I used a glass cup to cut the biscuits rather than a sharp biscuit cutter. I must remember to invest in some of those!

So, lessons I’ve learned:

* Don’t over-handle the dough. Stop JUST BEFORE you think its done.
* I need to invest in biscuit cutters AND a pastry cutter.
* Check the expiration date of your baking powder/soda BEFORE you bake.
* I must make these again. Simply because they tasted so good (and because I had tons of fun mashing up the sweet potatoes!)


For the recipe please visit Erin’s blog Prudence Pennywise and oogle her delicious goodies!! And for a better visual of these biscuits, visit the TWD blogroll!

  1. Mine were also yummy – and flat! Seems to be a common issue. Maybe it’s this recipe. I’m glad everyone still enjoyed though and I like the idea of it being a soft cookie.

  2. Hello, stopping by for the first time from Dorie’s site. This is my second week doing TWD.

    Love the cookie description and the taste is most important!

    Nice visiting with you!
    Kindly, ldh

  3. Haha! I love that you told your co-workers they were cookies. I’ve lied to co-workers and said baked goods were for birthdays when I really just needed to get some desserts out of the house. These were yummy no matter what they looked like.

    Love your sweet potato cookies! They look yummy and have a nice orange hue to them. Is that your backyard in the background – the grass is soo green and pretty! =)

  5. Don’t worry, you weren’t the only one who had issues with these biscuits rising! They were pretty finicky. I’m glad they were still well-received though.
