  • 1 1/2 cups baked sweet potatoes cooled and mashed well
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 5 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar


  • Preheat oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine mashed sweet potatoes, melted butter and buttermilk. Whisk to combine.
  • Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Stir just until combined.
  • Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. The dough will be sticky so sprinkle flour on top of the dough as well.
  • Knead the dough 10 times, sprinkling with additional flour as necessary.
  • Roll the dough out to about 3/4-inch thick and cut with round cutters.
  • Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Serve immediately.



Serve with this delicious brown sugar cinnamon butter!
