That fall root vegetable that never disappoints. Baked, boiled, chopped, sliced, mashed, twice stuffed, casseroles, biscuits… I mean the possibilities are endless when it comes to a sweet potato. But my favorite way to eat them has got to be these delectable, soft, layered sweet potato biscuits. The flavor is subtle and rich and the texture couldn’t be more perfectly layered and fluffy.

  • 1 ¼ cup sweet potatoes cooked and mashed
  • ¾ cup + 2 Tbsp buttermilk chill in freezer for 10 minutes- I always use this powdered buttermilk mixture
  • 5 Tbsp butter melted
  • 2 ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon OPTIONAL


  • PreHeat oven to 405 degrees.
  • I use a cast iron to bake biscuits, so I let the cast iron preheat with the oven adding 1 tsp of butter to the pan to melt while heating.
  • If not using cast iron, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, add mashed sweet potatoes. Pour melted butter into chilled buttermilk and stir with fork to combine. Pour mixture into sweet potatoes. Whisk to combine.
  • Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt & cinnamon (if using). Stir until just combined.
  • Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. If dough is still slightly sticky, sprinkle flour on top of the dough. Knead the dough 8-10 times, sprinkling with flour as needed.
  • Press dough out to about 1-1 ½ inch thick and cut with biscuit cutter.
  • Place on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 17 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve immediately.
  • These are incredible with apple butter, cinnamon butter or whipped maple butter 🤤
