  • 5 medium Louisiana sweet potatoes, (about 3 1/2 pounds)
  • 6 Louisiana satsumas
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon salt

  6. Cut 1/8-inch slices from the tops and bottoms of the remaining satsumas.
  7. Cut each satsuma in half horizontally.
  8. Use the tip of a teaspoon to remove the fruit from the rind, creating cups.

  14. Scoop the sweet potato purée into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip.
  15. Pipe the purée into the satsuma cups in a circular motion to create an attractive pattern.
  16. Bake them for 20 minutes or until the edges of the piped filling are lightly browned
