  • ===========Supplies==================
  • KitchenAid Mixer
  • Rolling pin with Rolling Pin Rings
  • Large Cutting Board or this Pastry Board
  • Heart Cookie Cutters or other mini cookie cutters
  • Two Jelly Roll Pans (I prefer these to flat cookie sheets)
  • Parchment Paper

You can bake it while you”™re making other food, and you can roast more than one potato and freeze the puree in silicon ice cube trays, store it in Ziploc freezer bags, and then just thaw it whenever you want to make some crackers (I learned this trick from making Elise”™s baby food purees). Or you can cut the potato into pieces and steam it until softened.

So anyway, however you cook your sweet potato then let it cool, remove the skin and pur̩e using a hand blender (these are the best for making purees) until itӪs a smooth mixture.

Set the cooled sweet potato puree aside.
