Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the sweet potato in a saucepan with just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until fork tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and mash with a fork or potato masher.

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Divide the pie crust into 24 small balls. Press them into the cups of two 12 cup mini muffin pans to make tartlet shells. Set aside.

  • Spoon the sweet potato into a blender or food processor, and add the evaporated milk, egg whites, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Puree until smooth. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of this mixture into each tart shell.

  • Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into one of the tarts comes out clean. Cool in the pans over a wire rack. Garnish each tart with a cranberry half before serving.

these were very good. I could eat like 50 of them by my self! One thing I will do differently next time - since i'm using premade already flat rolled out dough - is to just tear off pieces of pie crust and loosly drop them into the cups rather than roll it into a ball then try and smooch and fit the ball into the cup. It over works the dough to ball it up first and then reform it to the cups not to mention time consuming and frustrating. So just tear off a piece that looks about right and fit it in and then touch up around the edges with extra dough if you need to. Read More

The measurements were way off I had so much left. I gave it a 3 star because of the measurements and even though I found them to be o.k my husband didn't like them at all and he's the one I was mainly making them for. Read More

I made these for Thanksgiving and they are tasty little pies. I do think the measurements are way off though! I had enough batter to make 60 pies! I used the mini-muffin pan and used four frozen pie crusts to line the pans. You could easily half this recipe and have more than enough. Read More

OMG the kids loved it! They loved the idea of cute mini pies just for them. They rushed around me to help make them. And they couldn't wait for them to be ready. One trick I used was putting the mini cupcake wrappers in the tray first (I was afraid they'd get stuck to the trays). These were gone so fast! Read More

I tried this recipe for the first time on 11/23/04. I wanted to try it before Thanksgiving and if it turned out right I would have this instead of sweet potatoe pie. I really like it! It's great for portion control. The only thing I did was add a little flour and maple syrup to the mix in the blended. It seemed to hold together better. You should try this recipe it's great!

If you're looking for an easy tasty and festive appetizer for the holidays look no further. For the pie crust I used pre-made pie shells. I used a circle cookie cutter to cut out the mini pie shells and just formed them into the mini muffin tin. F.Y.I. plenty of batter left to make extra apps. Read More

Made these last night and turned out great. I used a basic pie crust recipe and regular size muffin pans and had about 18 mini pies which could have easily been 24 if i had any dough left. The kids 5 7 and 9 loved them and so did I. Very easy and delicious especially with a little whipped cream on top.:) Read More

I love this recipe. I've made it a few times now and every time it's been amazing. I don't have any way to measure the amount of pounds of sweet potatoes I'm using so I always eyeball it based on texture. I also add some black pepper to even out the sweetness and a splash of vanilla. Yummy! Read More

Wonderful recipe. I made 120 for a large dinner at our school and they were a big hit. Tip - boil the potatoes whole with skins on unitl tender. When they are cool enoung to handle the skins come off easily with a butter knife - much easier than peeling and dicing! Read More
