In a large bowl, combine mashed sweet potatoes, melted butter and buttermilk. Whisk to combine.

Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Stir just until combined.

Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface.

The dough will be sticky so sprinkle flour on top of the dough as well.

Knead the dough 10 times, sprinkling with additional flour as necessary.

Roll the dough out to about 3/4-inch thick and cut with round cutters.

Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
