The first time I made these was 2003 it was our (Jeff & I) second Thanksgiving together and my first Thanksgiving dinner I had ever cooked by myself. I wanted to make a fantastic Martha Stewart Thanksgiving dinner complete with Sweet Potato Biscuits, little did I know how bad they would turn out. I did not have a food processor when I attempted these the first time (BIG MISTAKE!) I used a blender to puree the sweet potatoes and got boiling hot sweet potato puree on my hand. I proceeded to shake my hand violently getting pureed sweet potato all over the kitchen (including the ceiling). I should have stopped but I wasn’t going to let a burned hand and a kitchen covered in sweet potato puree defeat me. I finished the biscuit dough and decided to put the biscuits in with the turkey (BAD IDEA!) The biscuits were not only charred black but they were doughy in the middle. I was so mad and Jeff being the amazing guy he is, tried really hard to eat the biscuits. Fast forward to 2008 I made the biscuits again (followed the directions EXACTLY!) and they turned out fantastic. I recommend making these a couple days ahead and freezing them and reheating them the day of. Yes this is a Martha Stewart Recipe but these biscuits are so good!
