Dishes & Beverages Of The Old South
Martha McCulloch-Williams (1913)

Old Style Sweet Potato Biscuit:

Boil soft two large or four small sweet potatoes, mash smooth while very hot, free of strings and eyes, add a pinch of salt, then rub well through three cups of sifted flour.

Rub in also a generous handful of shortening, then wet up soft with two eggs beaten very light, and sweet milk.

A little sugar also if you have a sweet tooth--but only a little.

Roll to half-inch thickness, cut out with small cutter, lay in warm pan, and bake brown in a quick oven.

Soda and buttermilk can take the place of eggs and sweet milk--in which case the sugar is advisable.

Mix the soda with the milk--enough to make it foamy, but no more.
