Keyword: sweet potato turnovers
Servings: 4 people


  • baking tray
  • pot
  • mixing bowl


  • 1 cup smashed sweet potato I used a heaping cup
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1.5 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 box puff pastry sheets I used Pepperidge farm – 2 sheets per box.
  • ¾ cup mini marshmallows

Maple Glaze

  • cup powders sugar sifted
  • 1 tablespoon 2% milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla flavor


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Take the puff pastry sheets out of the frig and let them soften.
  • Boil a pot of water and add the peeled and cubed sweet potatoes – I used 2 medium sized sweet potatoes. Cook for about 8-10 minutes or until fork tender.
  • Once cooked, drained water and add the potatoes to the food processor.
  • Buzz the potatoes until they are smooth and creamy. No lumps.
  • Add the creamy potatoes to a large mixing bowl, Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and combine using a spoon. Stir until well combined.
  • Unfold the puff pastry and cut the sheets into quarters. 2 sheets will get you 8 squares.
  • Scoop about 2 tablespoons of the sweet potato mixture on top of the puff pastry. Add about 6-7 mini marshmallows.
  • Take the corner closest to you and gently fold it up and over the mixture to form a triangle. Press the sides down using a fork to ensure they are well sealed. Repeat this process until all of the puff pastry squares are filled and sealed.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until they are golden brown and fully cooked.

Prepare the maple glaze:

  • In a small bowl combine the sifted powdered sugar, maple syrup, milk, and vanilla flavoring. Stir until smooth and creamy.
  • Once the turnovers are out of the oven, drizzle them with maple glaze.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
