Sweet Potato Biscuits

Sweet Potato Biscuits
• 1 1/2 cups Mashed Sweet Potato
• 3 1/2 cups sifted self-rising flour
• 1 stick butter
• 1/2 cup whole buttermilk
• 2 tablespoons Bacon Grease or Shortening
• 1/2 stick butter melted & room temperature
• 1/2 bourbon reduced to 1/3 cup (optional)
• 1/4 cup dark brown sugar 
• 3 tablespoons sorghum


1. Roast sweet potatoes 45 minutes or until tender. Cool. remove pulp and mash. (or you can boil sweet potato)
2 Preheat Oven to 400
3. Cut butter into flour mixture, some chunks of butter are welcomed. Add the sweet potatoes and half of the buttermilk to the flour mixture. Fold it in with a spoon until dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl. Add more buttermilk if needed to finish binding the mixture. Dough should be moist, not wet.
4. Dust your workspace and begin to form dough into a ball. Fold over 6 times, dusting with flour in-between each time. Roll out dough about 3/4 of an inch thick and cut out circles or squares.  Let cook for 8-12 minutes depending upon your oven.
5.  Melt 3 tablespoons of butter.  Pour over biscuits immediately as they come out of oven.
Bourbon Glaze
1. Combine reduced bourbon, brown sugar, butter and sorghum in a bowl, allow to cool and it will stiffen but still be pliable to brush over your biscuits.
2. Brush your biscuit tops generously, and you either blowtorch in a quick sweeping motion until they begin to caramelize on top or put them under a broiler until you see the sugar start to dance or bubble and then remove them to enjoy!
(Great served with Tipsy Ham or BBQ Smoked Brisket)
