    My grandson is allergic to dairy, so I substitute shortening for the butter and coconut milk for the buttermilk...It doesn't sound appetizing, but he loved them! With the butter and buttermilk, everyone else loved them too. Made them for a wedding reception with a country/harvest theme. With the ham, roasted veggies, and biscuits, people were so amazed! No leftovers, and lots of recipe requests. I am not a southerner but found them terrific.

    As a southerner, I was a bit disappointed with these biscuits. Although they were tasty with the orange peel, they did not rise like I would have liked. I know sweet potato biscuits are more difficult because the dough is heavier with the potato, but I just wish they were a little fluffier. However, they were tender and tasty, particularly with ham and the scallion cream cheese I made.
