Sweet Potato Cobbler

I remember my mother and her friend making this when I was young. It's so yummy and it's a perfect dessert for autumn when fresh sweet potatoes are plentiful in Alabama. I was raised on a farm and we used to dig potatoes and store them in the storm pit to keep them from becoming rotten. I think you'll like it. It's also a good Thanksgiving dessert. I wish I had one ready to eat right now!!

Dessert? Definitely. Side dish? Absolutely! Take your pick... no matter how you serve it, this sweet potato cobbler is a holiday delight. It's an old-fashioned recipe made with simple ingredients (and love). The filling is full of chunks of sweet potato floating in a yummy buttery spiced sauce. On top is a flaky crust dusted with sugar. The bottom of the crust soaks up the flavors of the filling. We served ours with a bit of whipped cream but it's just as delicious alone. Also, if you have an issue getting the crust cracking, don't stress. That's the beauty of a cobbler... it doesn't need to be perfect. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
