Okay, I had to find a recipe for this because my daughter brought some home one day for me to try. She said "mommy this is so good, I brought you some to taste!" So I taste it, and EAT IT ALL!!!
She was upset but she got over it when I made some - LOL
Here's my version of a tasty Southern treat!
Preheat oven to 400
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Bake time: 30-40 minutes
2 lb Sweet Potatoes (peeled)
3 1/2 Cups water
1 1/2 Cups white granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon vanilla
3/4 Cup Butter or Margarine
Choose your own crust BUT I went the easy route and used a
frozen deep dish pie crust and broke it up and placed it on top.
Peel and slice potatoes 1/4 inch thick.
In a saucepan with the 3 1/2 Cups water, cook sweet potatoes until tender, about 10 minutes.
Drain all liquid and save it! Don't throw this out!
Layer potatoes in a well greased 13 X 9 inch pan
Add in reserved liquid (1 1/2 cups)
Combine sugar, cinnamon, flour in a bowl and mix well.
Sprinkle this over the potatoes.
Dot with butter and cover with your pastry crust.
Sprinkle crust with a little bit of sugar.
Let me know what you think!
