Sweet Potato Drop Biscuits

I overbaked a large sweet potato last week and ate half of it. It was too mushy for me to eat alone as a side dish, but I didn’t want to throw it away. This morning, I decided to use it in biscuits.

The last time I made roll out biscuits they were overworked and tough. However, the last time I made drop biscuits they were almost melt in your mouth delicious. I combined the recipe in American Heart Association Cookbook for drop biscuits with a sweet potato biscuit recipe from Chowhound to make my recipe. When they were hot out of the oven, I poured maple syrup over them. It was exactly the taste I sought to enjoy.
