Calling all sweet potato lovers! Sweet potatoes are a thanksgiving staple, and this could be your new go-to! It is simple, easy, and leaves room for creativity. Add in apples, pears, or walnuts to spruce it up.

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 35 minutes 

Makes: 8-10 Serving(s)


  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 puff pastry
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon for topping
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup whipped cream cheese
  • ½ cup walnuts for topping (optional)*
  • 2 Granny Smith Apples (optional)** 


Preheat oven to 350. Place Puff pastry in a dish at 350F for 5-7 min. This will cook it a little bit and help the cream cheese spread evenly while warm.

Thinly slice sweet potatoes using a mandolin. Place them on a pan and drizzle olive oil, pure maple syrup, salt, and cinnamon sugar. Let these sit and marinate while the puff pastry bakes for 5-7 min.

Spread the cream cheese on the puff pastry and set it aside to cool. Stack your sweet potatoes strategically in the pan, in rows. Sprinkle extra cinnamon and place it in the heated oven for 30 min. Once the sweet potatoes are crisp, drizzle syrup and enjoy!

* If you are using walnuts, top the dish with them at the end

** If using apples, add them in with the sweet potatoes
