2/3 cup fat-free milk
1-3/4 to 2 cups all-purpose flour

Mix sweet potatoes and margarine in medium bowl; stir in 2/3 cup milk. Mix in 1-3/4 cups flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and salt. Mix remaining 1/4 cup flour if dough is too sticky to handle easily.

Knead dough on floured surface 5 to 6 times. Roll on floured surface to 1/2 inch thickness; cut with 2-inch biscuit cutter and place close together on greased baking sheet. Brush biscuits lightly with milk and sprinkle lightly with nutmeg.

Bake biscuits at 425 degrees F. until golden, 12 to 15 minutes.
