I grew up loving Mini Sweet Potato Pies so I took a trip back down memory lane to put my twist on a holiday classic. This is one dessert that would always make an appearance at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

And now I find myself enjoying it outside of the holidays; especially when I make it as a mini dessert. It’s perfect for any gathering, they pack well, and most importantly, everyone loves them!

The key to any great sweet potato recipe is the consistency and texture of the resulting filling. It must be velvety smooth and free of any chunks.

A buttery crust is equally important and to make things a little easier, I purchase the mini pie crusts from the frozen section. When all is said and done, you end up with a creamy, sweet, and comforting dessert that is great any day and any time.

Awesome job bro, I have learned to embrace cooking, my father always showed me things in the kitchen but I’m just now using all the knowledge shared to me over the years. My roots are filled with great food/ family

Thanks Charles. Being in the kitchen was always a way to connect with family so I completely understand as far as embracing it. Good stuff.
