Easy, tasty, and pretty!


  1. Combine Bisquick and orange peel. Cut in cream cheese until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  2. Add sweet potatoes and milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  3. Turn dough out onto a surface dusted with baking mix. Shape into a ball and knead 4 or 5 times. Roll 1/2 inch thick.
  4. Cut with 2 inch biscuit cutter dipped in baking mix. Place about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Using a sharp knife dipped in baking mix, make 6 1/2-inch cuts around the edge of each biscuit to form the daisy's petals. Use your thumb to make an indentation in the center of each biscuit. Put about 1/4 teaspoon of marmalade in the indentation.
  6. Bake at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

I'm a really big sweet potato fan, so this recipe was made for me! So easy to make & all for some REALLY GREAT TASTING BISCUITS! I did change a thing or to, though, in that I doubled the amount of marmalade/preserves that went in the middle, & I topped half of them with the asked-for orange marmalade & the other half with apricot preserves ~ Both were WONDERFULLY TASTY! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag]

These were really good! I'm the first to admit I'm biscuit challenged, but these were easy. I used Bisquick for the baking mix, and mango jam instead of orange marmalade. I also blended the sweet potato with the milk before adding to the dry ingredients to make mixing easier. These were served with sliced, sweetened strawberries and whipped cream, almost like a shortcake. Yum!
