2 large sweet potatoes, the thicker around the better for shapes
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. sea salt
¼ tsp. white pepper
*Cayenne pepper (optional), a small sprinkling for spicy version
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with a silpat, or parchment paper to prevent sticking.
Peel sweet potatoes and cut into ½ inch thick rounds.
Using a paring knife, or a small pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter, cut rounds into a pumpkin shape, making a stem, and trimming the bottom slightly. Each one will be different and unique, just like real pumpkins!
Place the sweet potatoes, spaced evenly apart on a baking sweet.
*Spicy Version – Add a small sprinkling of cayenne pepper to the pumpkins for a boost in flavor!
Bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until a fork can be easily inserted into the sweet potatoes.
