Over all, the dessert was very tasty, especially warmed up a bit. I thought the directions were a bit confusing so I went my own way. I put the sliced sweet potatoes in an even layer over the cobbler batter, then poured the syrup mixture over the top of the potatoes and baked it for 40 minutes. Being diabetic I substituted splenda and brown sugar splenda for the sugars: 3/4 cup granulated splenda both times and 1/4 cup brown sugar splenda. I also added a dash of nutmeg to the cinnamon. When making the cobbler batter, I increased the amount of flour to 1 1/2 cups to make it more like a traditional biscuit topping. There was too much syrup, so I poured some off after the dessert cooled. Next time I make this, I am going to cut the butter down to 6 tablespoons and the water down to 1 cup + 2 tablespoons to see if it helps.

Set potato cobblerNovember 25, 2010 By WilliekSC
Just what I was looking for (for years). I took a few liberties w/the original. I used a little more flour (approximate 1/4 cup), cinnamon & pumpkin pie spices combined. I also used buttermilk instead of just milk. Now for the kicker, I used combination Splenda & sugar (plain & brown) because of the diabetic folks in my family. I have discovered additional spice helps offset less sugar & artificial sweeteners. Good, quick, tasty cobbler! I'll make it again!

Not Mama's but closeJanuary 01, 2010 By grnygail
This is great using a tiny bit more flour, and I used nutmeg instead of cinnamon, because that's what my mother used. I've looked for a recipe that would be easy, and that would adapt to taste like the ones from my childhood in Georgia, and this is very close!

Very goodSeptember 11, 2007 By cther
My father-in- law is from southern Mississippi and is 84yrs he mentioned that he had not had a sweet potao cobbler in many many years so I hit the internet and found this recipe. I found others but this one sounded the easiest. It was great he enjoyed it very much I will be adding a little more flour though because I think it needed a little more cobbler effect. Goodbye sweet potato pies here comes the cobbler.
