Love the sweetness of the sweet potato with the cinnamon and nuts. *Great* textures and flavors in this *yummy* dessert! These are a terrific idea for the holidays too, especially Thanksgiving!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2

Mix all filling ingredients together in a large bowl. Set aside to cool.

Step 3

Place one sheet of phyllo dough on table. With a butter brush, lightly spread melted butter on phyllo sheet. Sprinkle with sugar.

Step 4

Layer second sheet of phyllo on top of first one, and repeat procedure.

Step 5

Layer with third sheet and repeat procedure.

Step 6

Place 2 tablespoonfuls of sweet potato mixture in one corner of the phyllo dough. Now fold phyllo sheets in half the long way, covering the sweet potato mixture.

Step 7

Continue, folding phyllo into a triangle, and folding back and forth from side to side, as if folding a military flag, until you get to the end of the dough. Tuck any leftover ends in, and put onto baking sheet, coated with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 8

Repeat until all triangles are finished.

Step 9

Spread some melted butter on top of each triangle, then sprinkle with some sugar and nuts on top.

Step 10

Bake until golden, 12-17 minutes.

Step 11

Let cool and eat plain, or serve with whipped cream, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I can't believe this recipe hasn't been made before this! It was a great choice for my gd and I to make together. It was really fun working with the phyllo dough! They were easy to make and a delight to eat! They browned nicely, and the nuts were definitely a plus! No offense, but they are much prettier than the photo!
