    Old Fashioned Sweet Potato Cobbler

    4 large Sweet Potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/2" thick (about 8
    cups)
    Lightly Salted Water to Cover
    2 cups Sugar
    4 Tbsp. Flour
    1 tsp. Cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
    1/2 cup (1 Stick) Unsalted Butter
    2 (9-inch) Rounds Unbaked Pie Pastry
    2 Tbsp. Milk
    1 Tbsp. Sugar
    1/4 cup Chopped Pecans, optional

    Place Sweet Potato slices in a large saucepan with lightly
    salted water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to
    medium and simmer about 7-8 minutes, or until slices are just
    tender but still firm. Drain all but 2 cups cooking liquid from
    pan. Reserve Sweet Potato slices.
    To liquid in pan, add sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir to
    combine. Add butter. Place pan over medium heat and stir until
    sugar and flour dissolve and butter melts. Return Sweet Potato
    slices to pan and let syrup bubble up. Remove from heat. Preheat
    oven to 400 degrees.
    Layer slices in the bottom of an 8x10-inch glass baking dish.
    Pour syrup over. Cut pie pastry into 3/4-inch strips and layer
    on liberally like latticework. Brush pastry top with milk and
    then sprinkle with sugar. Scatter pecans over top, if desired.
    Bake 20-25 minutes, or until pastry lightly browns and juices
    bubble up. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
    Makes 10-12 servings.
