  • In a saucepan, cook sweet potatoes in water until crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Drain reserving 1-1/2 cups cooking liquid.

  • Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; sprinkle over potatoes. Dot with butter.
  • For pastry, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add water, toss with a fork until a ball forms.
  • On a floured surface, roll pastry into a 13-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Place over filling; cut slits in top. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake at 400F for 30-35 minutes or until top is golden brown.
