Vegan Sweet Potato Puffs RecipeMMMM, ’tis the season for yummy sweets and tasty treats! And sweet potato is quite a star this time of year so while it’s fab for a dinner veggie, it makes for some pretty awesome sweet appetizers and desserts. You may want to name these “gone in 60 seconds” puffs!

  • 1/2 cup sweet potatoes, mashed or pureed
  • 1/4 cup vegan cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 package of vegan puff pastry dough (1 use sheet only), thawed
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small bowl, mash the sweet potatoes with a fork, and mix in the cream cheese, brown sugar if using, lemon juice, and pinch of salt until creamy. Cut the puff pastry sheet into 4 rectangles, then cut each rectangle in half and then cut the halves into 2 triangles. Place a heaping teaspoon of sweet potato filling in the center of each of 4 triangles. Fold the dough over on each, as if you were making ravioli, and pinch the edges together. Cook’s Note: Use a tiny bit of water if the dough is too dry to seal.

Continue making little triangles with the rest of the dough, 16 total. Place the triangles on a parchment-lined baking sheet and into the preheated oven. Bake the puffs until golden, about 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon, and pinch of salt. While still warm, brush the puffs with melted butter, and then gently toss in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.



  1. These look great! Quick question though… how did you wrap yours? They don’t look “ravioli” style like in the directions. The ones on the pic look so pretty!

  2. @ Chelsea Kirchmeier: Thanks! Yes, I played around and wrapped them spanikopita style! They are tasty either way ; )

  3. OH,MY GOODNESS!!! I Just Pulled These Out Of The Oven And My Mouth Is Stuffed As We Speak! These Are Amazing, Thanks For Sharing! Bringing ThemToMy Family Thanksgiving Tomorrow!
