Sweet Potato Biscuits with Ham and Orange Marmalade


  • 2 c. self rising flour
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. shortening
  • 2 Tbsp. butter softened
  • 1 cup sweet potatoes mashed
  • 1/3 c. milk
  • ham slices
  • orange marmalade


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Put the flour and sugar into a stand mixer bowl, add in the shortening and butter and mix only until you have about pea size pieces. Add in the sweet potatoes and milk. Mix until just blended.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead the dough a little using a little more flour if needed. Roll out to about 3/4" thick. Cut biscuits with 1" biscuit cutter. Put the biscuits on either a silpat, parchment or  sprayed cookie sheet. Bake for about 15-20 minutes at 400° until a little brown on top and bottom.
  4. Slice the biscuits, add some ham and orange marmalade. Either pop back in the oven for a few minutes to warm everything together or put them in baking dish, cover with foil until you are ready to serve them either that day or the next. If you do this step, then rewarm at 350° for about 15 minutes.
