🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Nutmeg
  • Cinnamon
  • Milk
  • Egg
  • Crescent Rolls
  • Marshmallows
  • Nuts (your choice)
  • Cream Cheese

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

This recipe takes a little prep, which is making the sweet potatoes, but other than that, it comes together very quickly.

Step 1
Boil (or bake)  sweet potatoes until tender, remove from water, drain and peel.  Place cooked potatoes in a large mixing bowl and add butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, milk and egg.  Mash with potato masher and then stir to make sure all ingredients are mixed well.  

Step 2
Place one can of the crescent rolls in a 9 x 13 baking dish. (I do not grease or spray the dish)  Pinch edges together to make a bottom crust.  Spread the sweet potatoes over the rolls.  Sprinkle on the 2 cups of miniature marshmallows, the chopped nuts and cut the cream cheese up in pieces about the size of a dime on top of all the ingredients.  

Step 3
Place the second can of crescent rolls over the ingredients.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes until crescent rolls are brown on top.  Remove from oven and let cool.  Whisk together the topping ingredients and drizzle over rolls. (I use a small cream pitcher). This will keep for several days in the refrigerator and you can reheat individual servings in the microwave.
