Yam Biscuits

You can quickly whip up these biscuits with ingredients found in your pantry. By including yams, you're including nutrition. Make larger biscuits to use for sandwiches.

1 (15-ounce) can sweet potatoes (yams), drained and mashed
4 cups all-purpose baking mix (such as Bisquick)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup skim milk
3 tablespoons margarine, softened

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, mix the mashed yams with the baking mix and cinnamon. Add the milk and margarine to the mixture, stirring until blended. Roll on a floured surface to 1-inch thickness. Cut with a 2-inch cutter or a glass and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 2 dozen.

Tester's note: Ours took about 18 minutes to bake. This is a very dense biscuit -- all the better for loading up with jam!

Doc's notes: Sweet potatoes are rich in beta carotene and vitamins C and B.
