Sweet Potato Biscuits

Hi. Yes, I realize sweet potato biscuits might go under the category of fall recipes. And, no, no I don't care that I'm writing this on May 23rd, because they are delicious.

For some odd reason, North Carolina had weather consisting of rain and 50 degrees a few days ago. My family had baked potato soup and these. Probably the perfect rainy day combination. They're super easy. Bisquick easy.

(And since it was 50 degrees and monsooning, the pictures are horrible. Pretend the lighting is semi-decent.)
Here's what you'll need. (And 1/3 cup of sugar, which I didn't take a picture of).
Whisk 2 1/2 cups of Bisquick and 1/3 cup of sugar and form a well.
Add 1 1/2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes. This recipe is great for leftover sweet potatoes!
Add 1/3 cup of butter, sliced into pats. Make sure its softened butter so it mixes into the dough well. Unless of course you want extra butter to run off the pan and get into your oven. Not that that happened to me or anything. Because it didn't. Kind of.
Add 1/2 cup of milk, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg. 
Stir until fairly uniform, making sure not to mix until the dough is tough. If you're feeling really ambitious, you could roll out the dough and cut out your biscuits. If you're not an overachiever, plop some of the dough onto a cookie sheet with a cookie scooper. I did the latter and mine turned out just fine.
Enjoy - whether its October 17th or May 23rd.

Here's the recipe:
2 1/2 c. Bisquick
1/3 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. mashed sweet potatoes (about 2 medium/large potatoes)
1/3 c. butter, softened and cut into slices
1/2 c. milk 
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg

Stir all ingredients until dough forms.
Either roll out dough and cut with biscuit cutter or drop biscuits onto baking sheet.
Bake at 450 for 10 minutes
