New Sweet Potato Cobbler

Recipe by Dreamgoddess

I had never heard of sweet potato cobbler before, so I just had to share this recipe. I found this in a regional magazine. I think I'll try this one during the holidays.

This recipe intrigued me greatly, as i love orange as well as sweet potato. But I was very disappointed with the finished product. Perhaps the orange juice and zest could be decreased or a little salt could be added. My BF and I eat a lot of sweets and this one just sat in the fridge becoming a glutinous mess with a soggy top. I think it can be improved on, just not sure where to start.
