Looking for an easy holiday appetizer? These sweet potato puffs are delicious!
OK, I have to admit… I’m not the best chef in the world. In fact, I only have about 5 dishes that I can make really well. Since I’ve been reading more blogs and spending countless hours on Pinterest looking at delicious recipes, I’ve decided that it’s time to hunker down and try new things to bake!
First on my list? Sweet potato puffs – a perfect appetizer for the upcoming holiday season! I got this idea from a little Christmas happy hour I attended last week .The only problem? I couldn’t find a recipe anywhere for what I was trying to accomplish. So I’m pushing up my sleeves and trying to make my own recipe! Here we go…
- 4 large sweet potatoes
- 3 cans of crescent rolls
- 3.62 oz of cinnamon sugar spice
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 stick of melted butter
- 4 tablespoons of honey
- 1 cup of brown sugar
First I preheated my oven to 350 degrees and greased up my cookie sheet.
Sweet Potato Puffs
Perfect appetizer for the holidays, these sweet potato puffs have few ingredients and are very easy to make!
- 4 large sweet potatoes
- 3 cans crescent rolls
- 3.62 oz cinnamon sugar spice
- ½ tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 stick melted butter
- 4 tbsp honey
- 1 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a cookie sheet.
Cook the 4 large sweet potatoes. Peel potatoes and put in a large mixing bowl.
Add butter, honey, vanilla extract and half of the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Mix with electric beater for 2 minutes or until all ingredients are combined.
Cut crescent roll dough into 2" squares.
Place a dollop of sweet potato mixture into the center of the dough.
Fold up the corners to the top (no need to pinch completely closed).
Once all the dough is filled with the mixture, sprinkle the top with brown sugar.
Bake for about 22 minutes or until the crescent rolls are a golden brown.
Sprinkle the sweet potato puffs with the remaining cinnamon sugar.
