Sweet Potato Biscuits

Sweet potato biscuits
I debated posting this, because I just couldn't get these sweet potato biscuits quite right. That said, they were tasty enough that they were worth making, even though I still need to tinker with the recipe to reach perfection. Here's the recipe I used:

1 lb. cooked sweet potatoes
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup water
2 and 1/4 cup Bisquick

Cool and peel the sweet potatoes. Mix the potatoes, brown sugar, Bisquick mix and water.

Stop here: A few caveats - I attempted to increase this recipe 2 and a half fold, so I may have mixed up my conversions. Because when it came time to follow the next set of directions, which were:

"Flour table, roll biscuit mix o 1/2 inch thickeness, and cut with a 2 and 1/2 inch cutter"

Disaster ensued. The mixture would not roll, it kept sticking the the rolling pin, and all in all, it was an utter failure. SO instead, I just decided to do drop biscuits - that is, I just took a heaping spoonful of the batter, and dropped it onto a buttered baking sheet.

I cooked them for about 10 minutes at 400. So here's the deal. They were really good. But they never did reach biscuit consistency - they were more cake-like than crispy. I experimented by cooking them longer, but this resulted in blackened bottoms and little change.

So, if you like a cake-y sweet potato biscuit, this recipe is for you. If, on the other hand, you have a better recipe that you can share with me, I'd be grateful.
