If you don't know already, I really HATE potatoes (unless they're seriously deep-fried). I'll admit, I do love sweet potatoes, though. I don't often do much with them at home which is sad, but whenever I go to a great steak restaurant I like order the sweet potato side instead of the potato or fries. So, when I noticed that Erin of Prudence Pennywise selected Sweet Potato Biscuits, I was ready and excited to make them.
Something else I'm willing to admit. I've never made biscuits by hand. Yes, I'm definitely a girl dependent on my appliances. BUT, for this week, I decided to TRY making them by hand just this once to see if I could really do it. Results...NOPE. I must have handled them way too long and may have even used a titch too much "dusting" flour. Even though they tasted absolutely delicious, they didn't really rise like I thought they would. Bummer. Plus, the sweet potatoes didn't mash up as finely with my fork as say, my food processor hence the chunkiness.
Overall, I would DEFINITELY make these again. They were a perfect compliment to the lentil soup I made for dinner (which was so satisfying and filling in itself...YUMM-O!). What I really liked most, was knowing that my 2 year-old son loved them and kept calling them "cookies" and was gobbling them up. Can we say, hidden nutrients!!!
