Mashed Potato BiscuitsMashed potato biscuits are one of my favorites.  I love mashed potatoes and I love biscuits. I can make a meal off these biscuits with butter and honey.

2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
1 cup mashed potatoes (I use regular mashed potatoes that I have leftover, not instant)
1 egg
1 tablespoon honey
3/4 to 1 cup buttermilk
Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Cut in shortening until mixture is like coarse crumbs.  Add mashed potatoes, egg and honey mixing with a spoon.  Add milk until mixture makes a dough and turn out onto a floured board.  Roll or pat out and cut with biscuit cutter.  I get about 20 biscuits from this recipe.  Place on sprayed baking sheet.  Bake in preheated 425 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes until brown on top.  Yummy!
