    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    I went to a cooking class this weekend and this is one of the recipes I created. These tasty triangles are really *wonderful*, and are definitely ones not to be missed! 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!

      I don't understand why it's taken so long for someone else to make this great recipe, 'cause these are very, very nice tasting, & I enjoyed working with the phylo dough! And, since the sweet potato is one of my favorite foods, well . . . Made this with buttermilk & also didn't peel the potatoes but rather diced them up very small before mashing them ~ We enjoy the taste of the peel, no less! Definitely something I look forward to making during this next batch of end-of-year holidays! I'm a-keepin' this recipe, for sure! [Made & reviewed in Bargain Basement tag]
