Sweet Potato Hand Pies
(adapted from Pillsbury)
Makes 14 pies
3/4 cup of mashed Sweet Potato
1 teaspoon Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Honey
1/4 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Vanilla
1/8 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
1 box Pillsbury refrigerated Pie Crusts, softened
1 Egg, beaten
1 tablespoon Sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Bake a fresh sweet potato in the oven
for approx. 30-40 minutes. Let cool, and then
peel the skin off.
In a small bowl, mix together the sweet potatoes, brown sugar,
honey, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg.
It can be mixed with a spoon and spatula.
Unroll the pie crust.
Cut out 7 4" round circles.
I used a cookie cutters.
Place a heavy teaspoon of sweet potato
mix onto each pie crust round, just slightly off center.
Brush the crust edges with water.
Fold the crusts in half, and then seal them by crimping
the edges together with a fork.
Brush the tops of each pie with egg,
and sprinkle sugar over the tops.
Bake in oven for 16-18 minutes.
Enjoy hot or cold!
