Sweet Potato Tartlets

My family can't resist sweet potatoes when they're mashed, placed in crunchy phyllo shells and topped with marshmallows. The bite-size tarts are fun to eat, too! —Marla Clark, Moriarty, New Mexico
  • Total Time

  • Makes
    15 tartlets


  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 package (1.9 ounces) frozen miniature phyllo tart shells
  • 15 miniature marshmallows


  • Place sweet potato in a small saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  • In a small bowl, mash sweet potato with butter, syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg. Place 1 tablespoon potato mixture in each tart shell. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Top with marshmallows. Bake at 350° for 8-12 minutes or until marshmallows are lightly browned.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Ginger pairs beautifully with sweet potato. Add 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger or minced candied ginger to the filling for a spicy surprise.
  • A plastic bag can be used to pipe the filling into the tart shells with no fuss and no mess. Just spoon the filling into the bag, snip off one corner, and pipe away!

      I've had this recipe and it was great. I'll be making it this time and have a question...Since potato sizes vary, would say it is 1 cup of mashed sweet potato? Thanks for the recipe!
