Use your leftover sweet potatoes in this yummy biscuit recipe made with wheat germ and seasoned with nutmeg or cardamom.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 1/4 cup evaporated milk, heated

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, wheat germ, baking powder, and salt. Mix in butter, evaporated milk, sweet potatoes, milk, and nutmeg, stirring by hand until dough is smooth.
