Nutrition Info Per Serving



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbs. baking powder
  • 1 tbs. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. fine salt
  • 1/2 tsp, ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup Bruce’s Yam Cut Sweet Potatoes; mashed & drained
  • 1 stick frozen, unsalted butter

Cranberry butter:

  • 1 stick softened unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup whole cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Steps to Prepare

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, mix together milk, cream and mashed Bruce’s Yams Cut Sweet Potatoes until evenly combined.
  4. Grate frozen butter through the large holes of a box grater and toss with dry ingredients until butter is coated. Add milk/cream mixture and mix lightly until dough forms.
  5. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead just until it comes together, about 30 seconds (the dough will not be smooth). Pat into a circle and use a floured rolling pin to roll dough to a thickness of about 3/4 inch. Using a 3-inch biscuit cutter, cookie cutter, or glass, cut the dough into rounds.
  6. Place rounds on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with cranberry butter, if desired.
  7. To make cranberry butter, stir all ingredients together until mixed well.
