Directions

The soup:
1.
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Rub the olive oil over the sweet potato, carrot, and apple to coat them. Spread in one layer on a baking sheet and roast for about 30 minutes. When it’s cool enough to handle, discard the peels off the sweet potato pieces.
2. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Sauté the shallot until soft, 5 minutes. Add the roasted vegetables, apple, and broth. When the liquid boils, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the carrot is soft, 20 minutes.
3. Puree the soup in a blender or with a hand blender. Season to taste with salt and fresh cracked pepper. Ladle into 4 deep soup bowls or mugs, garnish with dried cranberries, chives and puff pastry stars.

The puff pastry stars:
1.
Punch out the puff pastry with a cookie cutter to make cute little stars.
2. Brush with mustard and top with another star. Brush with beaten egg yolk and sprinkle with salt.
3. Arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paperand bake in you oven at 360°F (180°C) until puffed.
