Thanks to “Prince Charming’s” assistance with our new little prince, I’m finally able to make and post a TWD assignment – the first time in 3 months!
Since I never know how long the little prince is going to sleep I’m going to try to keep this post short and sweet…
This week Erin of Prudence Pennywise selected Sweet Potato Biscuits on page 26 of Dorie’s book. I don’t often make biscuits – not because they are terribly difficult or time consuming (they aren’t), but because, as much as I love bread of nearly all kinds, I can’t help but consider biscuits, rolls and such to be extra, unnecessary calories in a meal that I would prefer to save for dessert. That being said, biscuits and rolls do find their way onto my table for most major holiday meals where I tend to splurge a little (or a lot!).
I wasn’t entirely sure what to think of the idea of sweet potato biscuits. I will eat sweet potatoes but they aren’t something that I will generally go out of my way to eat, I prefer a good russet for baking and Yukon golds or reds for mashing and when it comes to pie I’ll take pumpkin over sweet potato any time. But, since I finally had both the time and inclination to bake again and “Prince Charming” is a fan of sweet potatoes I decided that I couldn’t let this recipe pass.
Here we have the finished product. Rather than risk overworking the dough I decided to cut the biscuits into squares (well, rectangles anyway) so I wouldn’t have any scraps to re-roll. I made a honey cinnamon butter that I thought complimented the flavor of the biscuits nicely. Both “Prince Charming” and I found the biscuits to be quite flavorful.
As always, head over to the TWD blogroll to see more interpretations of this week’s pick and don’t forget to check out Erin’s site for the recipe. Thank you, Erin, for your selection this week!
