Delicious Sweet Potato Snacks

My hubby made this for me.

Ingredients: enough to fill 15-20 small baking cups

Sweet potato
300g
★Butter
50g
★Sugar
50g
★Egg yolk
1
★Heavy cream
50ml

Steps

1. Peel the sweet potato and slice into rounds. Put them in a pot with enough water to cover, and boil. Once a skewer goes through the sweet potatoes easily, drain well.
2. Put the sweet potato in a bowl, mash with a rolling pin, and pass through a strainer. The texture will become smooth by straining the mashed potato (straining is optional).
3. Add the ★ butter, sugar, egg yolk, and heavy cream to the mashed potato, in that order, mixing well after each addition.
4. Cut off a corner of the bottom of a plastic bag, and fill with the Step 3 mixture. Pipe the mixture into small baking cups and bake in a toaster oven, making sure not to brown them too much.

Story Behind this Recipe

Potatoes are now in season, so I bought sweet potatoes. My hubby was excited and made these.
We didn't have a piping bag, so he used a plastic bag instead. The end product turned out to be surprisingly unique looking, so we were thrilled.
