  • 1 Heat oven to 450°. Pierce sweet potato with fork several times. Microwave on High 8 to 12 minutes or until tender. Let stand 5 minutes. Carefully peel potato. Place sweet potato in small bowl. Mash with potato masher until smooth. Stir in butter and buttermilk until smooth.

Place squares 1-inch apart on large ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until top edges are deep golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool 5 minutes.
  • 4 Mix frosting and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in small microwavable bowl. Microwave uncovered on High 5 to 10 seconds or until pourable. Drizzle over biscuits.
