A question about a recipe: Sweet Potato Biscuits Do you think these would work if i substitute olive oil for the butter?

I have a question about step 5 on the recipe "Sweet Potato Biscuits" from kitchenwitchcookie. It says:

"Once potatoes are pureed, measure 1 3/4 cups of puree. (Set aside any remaining puree to add to pancakes, muffins, cookies, etc...) Place the 1 3/4 cups of puree back in mixing bowl with butter pieces, and mix on medium until the butter is melted and incorporated."

This website recommends using less olive oil than the amount of butter called for, as their fat and liquid contents differ in a way that will change the consistency of the biscuit batter:


This recipe might be a better candidate for olive oil substitution (as opposed to a biscuit in which cold butter is cut into the dry ingredients) because the butter is melted. Let us know how it turns out!
