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

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!
