2. Mix in salt to taste if preferred.

3. Remove the bowl from the machine and remove the blade.

Making pies:

1. Take a muffin tray; grease each hole with oil or vegetable margarine.

2. Bake out the pastry dough in your tray, the pie shells should be at least 5 millimeters in thickness.

3. Add the sweet potato filling to each pie.

4. Leave about half an inch in height so that you have room for the red onion and hazelnuts.

5. Add the caramelized red onion on top of all the pies and press down into the filling.

6. Top with finely chopped hazelnuts.

7. Squeeze a satsuma or orange over each pie, about 0,5 tsp per mini pie, press with a spoon on the top of each pie so that the red onion and nuts mix into the filling.

8. Bake in middle of an oven preheated to 200 degrees C for about 30 minutes. If necessary, place a sheet of tinfoil over the pies as not to burn the surface.
