Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Combine milk and sweet potatoes, mixing well. Add to flour mixture and stir quickly.
Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead lightly. Roll to 1/2-inch thickness and cut with a floured biscuit cutter. Place on greased baking sheet and bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes.
For sweeter biscuits, add a little sugar and a few drops of vanilla extract to the dough.
