READY IN: 1hr 20mins
YIELD: 12 roses




  • Slice sweet potatoes thinly (best to use a Mandoline).
  • In a bowl, combine unsalted butter, sugar, cinnamon, salt; mix well.
  • Pour the mixture over the sliced sweet potatoes; make sure they are all well-coated.
  • Place the sliced sweet potatoes in the microwave for approx 20-30 seconds until soft so it rolls easily (add more time in the microwave if needed).
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry.
  • Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut dough in half vertically then horizontally creating 1 inch by 5 inch strips.
  • Arrange 15-20 sliced sweet potatoes into an straight row overlapping the edges.
  • Starting from the first slice you laid down, roll the lined up sweet potatoes forming a rose-looking shape.
  • Brush a strip of the pastry with egg wash then wrap it around the base of the sweet potato rose flower.
  • Brush butter in a casserole pan.
  • Lay two slices of sweet potato on the bottom, creating a base for each rose.
  • Add a dollop of marshmallow fluff on top of each sweet potato base.
  • Place each rose on the base, the marshmallow fluff acting as an adhesive.
  • Bake at 400F for 35-40 minutes or more until the potatoes are baked well.
  • After it cools, place mini marshmallows around the roses and top with confectioners' sugar.
