MAKES 8-10 SERVINGS
5 to 6 medium sweet potatoes (about 3 pounds) peeled and sliced into ¼-inch rounds
4 tablespoons cold butter
4 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1½ cup whipping cream
Place slices of potato in overlapping rows in a large shallow bake dish. Add ¼ cup water and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Microwave for 3 to 4 minutes, testing and adding one minute at a time if necessary. Potatoes should be just slightly tender, not falling apart. Carefully drain the dish.
Combine butter, flour and brown sugar using a fork to make a crumbly topping. (Can be done up to 24 hours before baking. Cover with plastic wrap and chill; return to room temperature before baking)
Pour cream over potatoes, sprinkle evenly with the topping. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven 45 minutes.
