Ingredients

How to make it

  • 1. Peel and quarter sweet potatoes. Cook potatoes, covered, in a small amount of boiling lightly salted water for 25 to 35 minutes or until tender. Drain well.
  • 2. Meanwhile, melt margarine or butter in a medium skillet. Add pears; cook, covered, over medium heat until very tender, stirring occasionally.
  • 3. Combine potatoes, pear mixture, and cinnamon in a bowl; beat with an electric mixer on low speed. Cool slightly.
  • 4. With electric mixer running on low speed, beat egg into cooled mixture. Using a decorating bag with a large star tip, pipe mixture into 12 rounds (about 1/3 cup each) onto a greased 15x10x1-inch baking pan, building up edges slightly. (Or, spoon into 12 rounds on baking pan, using back of a tablespoon to make a slight indentation in center of each.) Cover and chill overnight, if desired.
  • 5. Before serving, drop a scant teaspoon of Praline Topping on each round. Bake in a 375 degree F oven about 15 minutes or until potatoes are light brown and heated through.
  • Makes 12 servings

    I like that they can be made so far ahead. I'm having more company than usual this Thanksgiving, and I'll be doing these!

    The pear tree on the street is so full the limbs are almost on the ground. And the sweet potato fields are full of cuts. So I don't even need to go to the store. \0
