3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

¾ cups cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

1 cup heavy cream

1 (15-oz.) can Dunbars Nature's Pride® cut sweet potatoes, rinsed and drained

½ cup unsalted butter, softened

1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped

1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped

1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add cold butter and cut into flour using a pastry blender or 2 forks, until all pieces of butter are the size of a pea or smaller. Place bowl in freezer for 5 minutes.

Mash drained sweet potatoes using a potato masher until mostly smooth. Add heavy cream and whisk until combined. Remove bowl from freezer; fold potato mixture into butter mixture just until dough begins to come together. Turn out onto a well-floured surfaced and knead dough 4 to 6 times, just to bring dough together.

Pat or roll dough out in ½ - inch thickness. Cut biscuits using a 3 inch biscuit cutter, rerolling scraps once, and place on a baking pan, allowing biscuits to nearly touch. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until tops are golden.

Meanwhile, stir together softened butter, thyme, rosemary, remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use. Spread warm biscuits with herb butter just before serving.
