Can you say COMFORT! I love biscuits and these did not disapoint. I used pumpkin instead of sweet potato because that's what I had on hand, but I'm now curious of how they would turn out with sweet potato, so this means that I will need to make it again. Yay! The cinnamon butter is so good slathered over these hot biscuits. Thank you luvcookn for sharing. Made it for Pick Me Tag game.

Great biscuits! I used some leftover mashed sweet potatoes. The recipe was easy to follow and the biscuits turned out really well. I loved the honey butter! Thank you.

These were incredible. Soft, tender, crisp, flavorful and delicious biscuits that melted in your mouth. The honey butter was delicious and paired perfectly with the biscuits. I garnished ours with an extra sprinkling of cinnamon,so good. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, that I will make again. Made for Best of 2014 Tag Game.

These are terrific! They came together so quickly, and the end result is light and moist. The honey butter is oh-so-good! DH says he's not sure if they're dinner or dessert. I'll take them either way!Made for FF&F Best of 2014. These definitely are...

I made a beef stew and had these with it. I loved them so much that I didn't know whether to eat the biscuit or the stew first. Of course I chose the biscuit! The butter is an excellent choice for a topping for these muffins and they were MMmmmm Good!
