So, after an extended break, I'm back on the TWD train. I was really excited for this recipe- i love all things sweet potato! But I have to say I jinxed myself on this one. While getting ready to bake them, I told my husband and my mom that I hadn't had a recipe that really turned out bad from Dorie's cookbook. Until now (actually I take that back, the arborio rice pudding was also a clunker). We had leftover roasted sweet potato and squash and I was excited to use that for these biscuits. Maybe because they were roasted, not steamed, the mixture was dry. I added a teeny bit of milk, which made the dough come together but perhaps they were overworked because these biscuits didn't "puff." They were flat and a little chewey, like some other experienced. They tasted alright though, alongside a bowl of beef chili with all the fixin's. This week's recipe was chosen by Erin of Prudence Pennywise. Check out the recipe on her blog or on page 26 of Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
