Sweet Potato Biscuits

Alone for dinner tonight, cravings biscuits, with sweet potato to use up from last night:

Mix together (I didn't bother with sifting):

1 c flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
a few pinches salt (about 3/4 tsp maybe, but no more, they could even stand a little less)

Cut in 2 tbsp oleo, then add

3/4 c sweet potatoes mashed with
good dollop molasses,
same dollop agave nectar, and
several shakes of cinnamon

Mix by hand, adding a splash of soymilk to bind dough.

Pinch off (like cathead biscuits), shape, and place evenly spaced on baking pan.

Bake 13 mins at 400 degrees.

Made 6 large-ish biscuits.

Biscuit #1 was dipped in melted oleo with another dash of cinnamon.
Biscuit #2 was sliced, and spread with peanut butter, which was okay but not fantastic.
Biscuit #3 was plain.
Biscuit #4 will become a late-night snack, and 5 & 6 will be breakfast.

These aren't phenomenal, but they were substantial and filling. Would be good with something savory, like a good winter chili. They fall into the "soft" category more than "fluffy," as they rose a little but were still a bit heavy from the potato. The spices could use some enhancing and tweaking, but I was satisfied enuough to eat them.

If anyone has inspired ideas for tweaks or accompaniments, let me know.
