Author Notes

I fell in love with this sweet potato-filled pastry at The Portuguese Bakery in Provincetown, MA and feature out to create my hold on returning dwelling to Recent York. Whereas some recipes call for boiling the sweet potatoes and draining them in a single day to release the water, I counsel microwaving them. It concentrates the flavour and tremendously reduces the preparation time. —Jennifer Perillo
