Mashed Potato Biscuits

Mashed 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.  These biscuits keep well in an airtight container or cool place. They can be reheated in the microwave or the oven. You could cut the recipe in half if you only want to make a few or are making them for just two people. I always make these biscuits with leftover mashed potatoes from a meal that have butter added to the potatoes. I have not tried making them any other way as they are just a way to use up leftover potatoes for me.

Mashed potato biscuits are easy and delicious.

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!
