Sift flour and cut in shortening. Add sugar and sweet potatoes. Stir in buttermilk. Use a little more flour if needed to make dough stiff. Knead lightly on floured board. Roll to 1/2 inch thick. Cut with biscuit cutter. Bake on ungreased baking sheet at 450 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl; cut in shortening with pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Add sweet potatoes and milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface; knead lightly 8-10 times. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness; cut with a 2 inch round cutter. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at (preheated) 400 degrees F for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 1 dozen.
