  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt; stir in bacon and thyme. Shred frozen butter, using large holes of grater; add to flour mixture and toss to coat. Stir in sweet potato and buttermilk just until soft dough forms.
  • 2
    Place dough on lightly floured surface; gently roll in flour to coat. Knead lightly 4 or 5 times. Press or roll dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut with floured 21/2-inch biscuit cutter. On ungreased cookie sheet, place biscuits about 1 inch apart.

    Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Brush with melted butter. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • Coarsely shredding frozen butter is a nifty way to disperse small butter pieces into biscuit dough, making biscuits that are tender and flaky.
