1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 tablespoons whipping cream
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1 2/3 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup buttermilk


Melt 1/2 cup butter in a 10 1/2-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Whisk in whipping cream and next 5 ingredients. Remove from heat.

Layer sweet potato slices evenly in cream mixture. Cover with aluminum foil, and place on a baking sheet.

Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Uncover.

Cut 1/3 cup butter into flour with a fork or pastry blender until crumbly; stir in buttermilk until moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 to 4 times. Pat or roll dough to a 10 1/2-inch circle; place over cobbler. Sprinkle with Streusel Topping.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden.
