Directions

  1. Peel and quarter sweet potatoes. Cook potatoes, covered, in a small amount of boiling lightly salted water for 25 to 35 minutes or until tender. Drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, melt margarine or butter in a medium skillet. Add pears; cook, covered, over medium heat until very tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. Combine potatoes, pear mixture, and cinnamon in a bowl; beat with an electric mixer on low speed. Cool slightly.
  4. With electric mixer running on low speed, beat egg into cooled mixture. Using a decorating bag with a large star tip, pipe mixture into 12 rounds (about 1/3 cup each) onto a greased 15x10x1-inch baking pan, building up edges slightly. (Or, spoon into 12 rounds on baking pan, using back of a tablespoon to make a slight indentation in center of each.) Cover and chill overnight, if desired.
  5. Before serving, drop a scant teaspoon of Praline Topping on each round. Bake in a 375 degree F oven about 15 minutes or until potatoes are light brown and heated through. Makes 12 servings.
