Sweet Potato Pecan Pie Tarts

These are so adorable and taste like a cross between a sweet potato and pecan pie!

Pierce each sweet potato a few times with a fork, place in a pie plate with two tablespoons water, cover loosely with wax paper, and microwave at high five minutes or until tender.

1 cup mashed cooked sweet potato
or yams
3 tablespoons granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup chopped toasted pecans
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon dark corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg white
2 (2.1-ounce) packages mini phyllo shells (such as Athens)

Preheat oven to 350. Combine sweet potato, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt, stirring well. In a separate bowl, combine pecans, brown sugar, syrup, vanilla, and egg white. Spoon about 1 teaspoon sweet potato mixture into each phyllo shell, spreading to edges. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon pecan mixture over sweet potato mixture.

Place filled shells on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Yield: 15 servings (serving size: 2 tarts)
