2 cups mashed sweet potatoes (without added milk and butter)
1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/4 teaspoon each ground ginger, allspice and cinnamon
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter-flavored shortening
5 to 6 tablespoons cold water
Milk and additional sugar
In a large saucepan, combine filling ingredients. Cook over medium-low heat for 12 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Cool.
For pastry, combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.
Divide into 12 portions. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 6-in. circle. Spoon 1/4 to 1/3 cup filling on half of each circle. Moisten edges with water; fold dough over filling and press edges with a fork to seal.
Place on greased baking sheets. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Cut slits in top. Bake at 425° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
