Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, pepper, baking soda, and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Cut butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir sweet potatoes and cream into the flour mixture until the dough is soft.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface; knead the dough, turning over about 5 times. Roll to about 1/2-inch thick. Cut 2-inch circles out of dough and arrange on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.

I liked the taste but for me it needed a lot more pepper. I use fresh cracked rainbow peppercorn

Excellent! I made them exactly as directed- and put an egg wash on top. I will make these often!

Added more pepper and also cracked some on the tops before they went in the oven. Didn't rise much...maybe I need some new baking powder? But the flavour and texture was awesome and will make again! Bisquits were so tasty the next day!
