Sweet Potato, Cream Cheese and Rosemary Biscuits

We spent a day at Disneyland in California. We had dinner at the Blue Bayou Restaurant.
They have a new biscuit on their menu. It's served in a basket with rolls at the beginning of the meal.
Apparently the recipe is not available for publication but here's a copycat recipe.

2 C flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder1/2 tsp baking soda
1 (8TBS) butter
4 oz. cream cheese
3 tsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1/2 C buttermilk, plus extra for brushing
1/2 C sweet potato puree

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

In a large mixing bowl:
Baking Powder
Baking Soda
Cream Cheese
Combine well

Using a pastry cutter or two butter knives, cut the butter and cream cheese into the remaining ingredients until the mixture resembles pebbles with some large chunks remaining.

In a small bowl:
Sweet Potatoes
Mix well.
Add to flour mixture.
Mix until combined well.

Place dough on a floured surface and knead until it comes together as a soft dough
Do not over handle the dough.
Pat it out into 2 inches thick and cut into 2" biscuits with a biscuit cutter.
Place them on a parchment paper lined sheet pan , brush the tops with additional buttermilk.
Bake for 18 - 20 minutes, until golden brown.

Peace in the Kitchen!
