And, speaking of which, we've got a Sweet Recipe for ya today! Kathleen, she of Katydid and Kid, sent me this Delish Dish, which she makes each Turkey Day and for Christmas, too. Enjoy!

Kathleen's Sweet Potato Biscuits
1 2/3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 sweet potato (10 ounces)--baked, peeled and pureed
1/4 cup cold half-and-half
2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Preheat the oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, nutmeg, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 3/4 cup of the pureed sweet potato and the half-and-half and mix just until the dough comes together.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead gently 6 to 8 times, just until the dough holds together. Roll or pat the dough into a 9-by-7-inch rectangle about 3/4 inch thick. Sprinkle the dough with the sesame seeds and pat them in. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 12 squares. Arrange the biscuits 1/2 inch apart on the prepared sheet and bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve hot.

These truly are to die for, so flaky and moist from the sweet potato. I'm getting hungry just thinking about them...and only a few days from now!

Thanks for posting this!

Your click Here and Here and Here and Here reminded me of the Genie (sp) of the lamp in Alladin. Love that Disney cartoon. Anyway, thanks for stopping by my SITS day. It's nice to see you again and I so love these recipes. I hope you understand I have tons of commenters to respond to so I'll try and come back soon but may not make it in time for an entry. It's so nice of you to have such a fun giveaway though. Many blessings to you all.
