Recipe Name Yam Biscuits
Difficulty Level Medium
Traditional food from United States of America
Ingredients 1 large or 2 small yams or sweet potatoes (1/2 cup baked and mashed)
2 cups plain flour
1 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 cups vegetable shortening
1/2 cups milk
Preparation Bake and mash the yams.

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Mix in the shortening and mashed yams with an electric beater (at medium-low speed) or a whisk, until they are evenly distributed and the mixture appears light and crumbly (about 2 minutes).

Add the milk, until all ingredients are well mixed.

Flour a surface and turn the contents of the bowl out onto it.

Knead lightly for about 30 to 45 seconds, just until a slightly moist, streaky looking dough is formed.

Roll out to a thickness of 3/4 inch and cut out biscuits with a biscuit cutter.

Transfer to an ungreased heavy baking sheet.

Bake on the middle rack of a preheated 450F oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the biscuits are lightly browned on top and appear flaky.

Set to cool for about 5 minutes

Serve warm, with butter.
