Ham Sweet Potato Biscuits

by admin on March 12, 2010

1/2 cup lightly mashed cooked sweet potatoes
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1-1/4 cups all-purposee flour, sifted
1 tablespoon sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound country ham, thinly sliced

Cranberry mayonnaise:

1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 can (14-12-ounce size) jellied cranberry sauce

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

Combine the sweet potatoes, milk and butter in a mixing bowl. Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and mix with the potato mixture to form a soft dough.

Knead the dough until smooth on a lightly floured surface. Roll to a thickness of 1/2 inch and cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place on the prepared baking sheet; each biscuit should touch another.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool on baking sheet.

To make cranberry mayonnaise, put mayonnaise and cranberry sauce in food processor and process until smooth.

Spread cranberry mayonnaise on biscuits, fill with ham, and wrap in foil, making two layers of biscuits. You may store them overnight in the refrigerator. Warm at 350 degrees for 15 minutes if the biscuits are at room temperature, 30 minutes if they have been refrigerated.
