Sweet potato soufflés and pumpkin pies are Thanksgiving staples, but these sweet potato or pumpkin biscuits will be a sweet treat that the entire family will enjoy. After you bake the biscuits add a drizzle of icing for a delicious dessert or you can omit the optional spices and add bacon for a savory dinner side.
