  1. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  3. 1 tablespoon firmly packed dark brown sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  5. ¾ teaspoon cream of tartar
  6. ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  7. ⅓ cup butter, cut into pieces
  8. 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  9. 4 slices cooked and crumbled bacon
  10. 1 cup whole milk
  11. ½ cup mashed sweet potato
  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, brown sugar, salt, cream of tartar, and cayenne. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in Cheddar cheese and bacon. Make a well in the center of flour mixture.
  3. In small bowl, whisk together milk and sweet potato. Add sweet potato mixture to flour mixture.
  4. Using a fork, stir just until combined. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface. Knead gently 12 times. Roll dough to a ¾-inch-thick rectangle. Cut into 8 rectangular pieces.
  5. On reserved baking sheet, place biscuits 1 inch apart. Bake until lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Serve warm.
