Sweet Potato Biscuits with Cheese


  • 2 c. flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 c. mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • Colby Jack Cheese or any cheese, cut into 1″ pieces (will need 24 cubes)


Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter and sweet potatoes. If mixture is too dry, add 1-2 tablespoons milk to hold together. Knead on floured surface. Cover with plastic wrap and let set 5 minutes. Divide evenly into 24 pieces. Wrap each piece around a cheese cube. Roll into ball. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes. Biscuits should be slightly brown and cheese will start running out. Serves 24 people. Amazing!
