Sweet Potato Biscuits

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 6 Tbsp Benecol or Take Control Regular Spread, well chilled
  • 1/2 cup mashed baked sweet potato, chilled
  • 2 Tbsp low-fat milk


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Combine the flour, baking powder, and curry powder in a large bowl.  Using a fork, cut the Benecol or Take Control into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal.  Work in the sweet potato.  Add the milk and work the dough with a fork then using your hands to form a soft dough.  Knead the dough 3-4 times, just until it is supple.  Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board and roll it out in a circle 5/8 inch thick.  Cut out 12 2-inch circles.  Place biscuits on a light colored baking sheet.  Discard any scraps.  Bake 12 minutes.  Transfer to a rack to cool 10 minutes.


12 servings (1 biscuit per serving).
