  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper. Separate 4 Tbsp. butter, cut into ¼" dice, and put in refrigerator until use. Keep remaining butter out to soften. In a medium mixing bowl, combine 1 ¼ cup flour (reserve the rest for dusting on your workspace), white sugar, baking powder, half the cinnamon, baking soda, and 2 pinches of salt. Mix to combine. In a small bowl, mash sweet potatoes with a fork, add buttermilk, stir to combine, and set aside.

  2. 2

    Mix the Flour Mixture

    Remove butter from the refrigerator and add to flour mixture. Pinch pieces of butter between your fingers to create smaller pieces of butter; this is called "cutting in." Continue pinching until the mixture looks like wet sand and the butter is the size of small misshapen peas.

  3. 3

    Make the Dough

    Add sweet potato-buttermilk mix to flour-butter mix and stir to combine with a fork until wet ingredients are fully absorbed into dry ingredients. Dust your workstation with some of the remaining flour, enough so dough doesn't stick. Knead dough 4 or 5 times to help bring it together. (Don't overwork the dough: it will cause your biscuits to be tough instead of light and flaky.) Using your hands, pat dough down into a rectangular shape (about 4" x 6") and about 1" thick. This does not have to be perfect.

  4. 4

    Make the Biscuits

    Cut 4 triangles (or squares if you prefer) and place biscuits on prepared baking sheet. Melt 1 Tbsp. of remaining butter in the microwave or using a small pan and gently brush melted butter over the biscuits. (If you do not have a brush, you can use a spoon, fork, or even your fingers!) Place in oven and bake for approximately 14-16 minutes. When finished, the tops will become golden brown.

  5. 5

    Make The Butter

    While biscuits are baking, in a small bowl, add remaining 3 Tbsp. of softened butter, remaining cinnamon, and brown sugar. Stir to combine.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Remove biscuits from oven and serve warm with the delicious butter. Yum!
