Sweet Potato Biscuits With Jalapeño Butter

[Photograph: Carrie Vasios]

Sweet potatoes lend these biscuits a subtle sweetness that is contrasted by the heat in the jalapeño butter.

Notes: To make the sweet potato puree, microwave sweet potato on high until soft. about 4 to 5 minutes. Let cool then scoop out 1 cup of flesh. Alternatively, you can roast the sweet potato in a 425°F oven until tender, about 45 minutes.

I found the butter to have the right amount of spice when I used 1 small jalapeño, including the seeds, per stick of butter. If you prefer a less spicy butter, take out the seeds before using.
