Sweet Potato Biscuits

Other day I was watching Paula deen's 'Honey it's ready' episode on Food network and episode is all about the honey. She shared this breakfast-snack recipe 'Sweet Potato Biscuits'. 
This was my first time baking biscuits from scratch and was bit worrried but believe me it tasted so nice sweet and crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Ingredients
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 heaping tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) softened butter
2 to 4 tablespoons milk (depending on the moisture of the potatoes)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large bowl, Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
In a another medium bowl, mix the sweet potatoes and butter.
Add the flour mixture to the potato mixture and mix to make a soft dough. (If required add tablespoon of  milk).
Turn the dough out onto a floured board and toss lightly until the outside of the dough looks smooth. Roll the dough out to 1/2-inch thick and cut with a biscuit cutter.
Place the biscuits on a greased pan and coat tops with melted butter. Bake for about 15 minutes. (Watch your oven: If the biscuits are browning too fast, lower the temperature)
