TOPPING

1 cup powdered sugar

4 or 5 tablespoons milk

SWEET POTATO, CREAM CHEESE AND MARSHMALLOW CRESCENT ROLLS

Sweet Potato Crescent Rolls - TSLC

This recipe for Sweet Potato Crescent Rolls is one you will make over and over again.  Serve it to family and guests for a wonderful breakfast dish with coffee or serve it as dessert with ice cream or whipped cream.  Children will love it as a snack with milk.   I love sweet potatoes and I could eat this whole thing by myself.  If you like sweet potatoes as much as I do, I think you will love this recipe.

2 medium sized sweet potatoes,  cooked and  peeled or about 2 cups

4 tablespoons butter or 1/4 cup

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons milk

1 egg

2 (12 ounce) cans regular crescent rolls

2 cups miniature marshmallows

1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)

4 ounces cream cheese

TOPPING

3/4 cup powdered sugar

2 to 3 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Boil (or bake)  sweet potatoes until tender, remove from water, drain and peel.  Place cooked potatoes in a large mixing bowl and add butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, milk and egg.  Mash with potato masher and then stir to make sure all ingredients are mixed well.  Place one can of the crescent rolls in a 9 x 13 baking dish. (I do not grease or spray the dish)  Pinch edges together to make a bottom crust.  Spread the sweet potatoes over the rolls. (See photos below) Sprinkle on the 2 cups of miniature marshmallows, the chopped nuts and cut the cream cheese up in pieces about the size of a dime on top of all the ingredients.  Place the second can of crescent rolls over the ingredients.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes until crescent rolls are brown on top.  Remove from oven and let cool.  Whisk together the topping ingredients and drizzle over rolls. (I use a small cream pitcher). This will keep for several days in the refrigerator and you can reheat individual servings in the microwave.   Makes about 12 servings.  Enjoy!

Note:  You could probably make this with canned sweet potatoes, too.  I have not tried it using the canned sweet potatoes.

FRESH PEACH AND BLUEBERRY PIE

Fresh Peach and Blueberry Pie - TSLC

Fresh peaches are always a favorite fruit at our house and this Fresh Peach and Blueberry Pie is wonderful with coffee or as a dessert with ice cream on top.  You can make this with all peaches and leave out the blueberries.

4 cups sliced or chopped fresh peaches (I used about 5 large peaches).

1 cup fresh blueberries

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 cup white granulated sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 tablespoons butter

2 (9 inch regular pie crusts)

Sprinkle lemon juice over peaches. Drain. Set aside.  Whisk together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Add the sliced peaches and toss to cover with flour mixture. Stir in vanilla extract. Fold in blueberries carefully. Cut butter into small pieces on top of filling.   Fill pie crust with filling and top with second pie crust or cut second crust in strips and weave together on top of pie.  Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350 degrees and cook another 35 minutes. Let cool before cutting.  Makes 1 pie. Enjoy!

Note:  If you use a solid pie crust on top, cut about 3 slits in the top to let out steam. I have not tried this recipe with frozen peaches or blueberries or canned peaches.  If you make it with frozen or canned I would make sure they are drained well. You can brush the top crust with milk or egg if you like a brown crust. If your pie crust tends to stick to the pie plate, spray the pie plate with cooking spray before adding the crust. If you make this pie with all peaches I would add another cup of peach slices.
