A recipe for Sweet Potato and Rosemary Biscuits Sweet Potato and Rosemary Biscuit recipe. A perfect biscuit recipe for Sweet Potato and Rosemary Biscuits. Hi Guys! We have more biscuits for you today because it’s Monday and I need something really awesome to keep me going this week. I love sweet potatoes….everything about them. I love their creamy texture, with the hints of natural sweetness they carry…so good. I love cooking with them, but more so I love love love baking with them. When you bake with potatoes it’s like adding instant moisture to whatever it is you’re making. We made these guys a little while back and they’re one of my favorite kinds of doughnuts….with the cutest name, Spudnut! Super cute, right? Not only does baking with sweet potato add a smooth texture and tons of moisture, but they also add a gorgeous orange tinge to whatever it is you’re making as well.

Anyways, back to these Sweet Potato & Rosemary Biscuits. I love them. Really. They don’t rise quite like regular biscuits because I’ve added so much potato to this (for fluffier biscuits scale back on the sweet potato and add more flour), but they taste amazing! The rosemary is just an added bonus that go really well with the sweet potato. These are best eaten plain, with a schmear of butter or dipped in a nice, thick soup or chowder, like this one! Enjoy! xx, Jenny

    I love sweet potato and rosemary together. These look like they would be so good with a little drizzle of honey.

  14. Schweet Life Not Specified Not Specified

    I love sweet potatoes but I don’t think I’ve used rosemary in anything before. These would probably be go well with bacon and eggs or ham or bbq ribs. Great, now I have a craving for some…
