Sweet Potato Biscuits



1 cup boiled and finely mashed sweet potatoes
2 well-beaten eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 scant tablespoons melted butter or lard
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups milk


Mix together all the dry ingredients. Stir beaten eggs and potatoes into the milk. Add dry ingredients to the milk mixture. If the mixture is too soft, add sufficient flour to make a soft dough. Roll out lightly, cut with a biscuit cutter, and bake in a hot oven for about 15 minutes.
