(Easy) Sweet Potato Pie Pastries

Easy sweet potato pie pastriesSweet potato pie is kind of the over-looked step sister of pumpkin pie. Don't you think? I bet every year when the internet goes crazy for pumpkin spice everything, sweet potatoes everywhere think to themselves, "You know, I'm basically the same thing but sweeter."

And they are correct. But they still go unnoticed it seems. But who want a sweet potato latte? No takers? Well, I guess that's part of the problem for them. Sweet potato pie bites!I could go on. But I have a feeling I'm starting to cross over into weird kitchen lady rambling territory. So I'll stop. Let me just say one final thing about sweet potatoes: They are delicious. They smell, taste and are colored like the autumn season with just a little more natural sweetness than pumpkin. Not that it's a competition. And these little pastries are an absolute breeze to throw together if you're ever in need of just a little something sweet. Add a few marshmallows here and there and these are just too fun not to make. Easy sweet potato danishSweet Potato Pie Pastries

1 package (2 sheets) frozen, thawed puff pastry
1 can (15 oz.) sweet potatoes in syrup
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 egg
marshmallows (optional)

Drain the sweet potatoes from the syrup. In a bowl combine the potatoes, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and mash together until nearly no lumps remain. Spoon batter onto puff pastry sheets. Form any kind of shapes you prefer: pinwheels, spirals, braids, crescents, etc. Brush with an egg wash. Bake at 375Β°F for 15 minutes. If you are adding the marshmallows, do so during the 2 minutes of baking. Super easy sweet potato danishEnjoy these! xo. Emma
