Genesis Healthy Heart Kitchen: Sweet Potato in Puff Pastry


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cups Half&Half
  • 1 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Olive Oil


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Prick the sweet potatoes all over with a fork, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Put them in a roasting pan and roast for 45 minutes until they are very soft. Remove the pan from the oven.
  • In a small sauce pot, over low heat, heat the cream then keep warm until ready to puree potatoes.
  • When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, scoop the flesh into the bowl of a food processor. Season with salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and honey b Add cream and 1 tablespoon of butter and puree until super smooth
  • Scoop a portion of the sweet potatoes into the cavity of a puff pastry shell baked according to package instructions.  For fun, top with pecans or raisins or marshmallow or anything you’d like…although the truly need no additional topping.
