Fall and the holiday season are right around the corner and we're already craving those rich flavors that this cool season brings. (And no, we're not talking about pumpkin. Or spice. Or lattes.)

While pumpkin undoubtedly remains a staple flavor when fall comes around, there's another golden orange vegetable that has our eye. Versatile, delicious, easy to cook, and healthy, sweet potatoes are not just for casseroles and holiday pies.

Fluffy, light, and easy-to-make, sweet potato biscuits are a unique and subtly sweet twist on a classic and the perfect addition to your weekend brunch or holiday menu. Say goodbye to the basic biscuit and hello to its sweet cousin, because the Montage catering team is here to help you step up your biscuit game with this recipe for sweet potato biscuits.

Ingredients:

• 4 cups all-purpose flour
• 4 tbsp baking powder
• 2 tsp kosher salt

Directions:

1. Mix all dry ingredients.
