Divide each biscuit in half by pulling layers apart and pat each side out flat.
Slice sweet potato rounds in half and sprinkle with spice of your choice. I used cinnamon since that is my favorite spice with sweet potatoes.
Place half of 1 sweet potato round (thawed) on biscuit half.
Fold biscuit over and seal edge like a fried pie or turnover.
Melt butter in a 9 X 13 pan in 350 degree oven.
Place biscuits in melted butter in the pan .
Stir water, sugar, and corn syrup together in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and allow to simmer until sugar is completely dissolved, still stirring occasionally.
Pour hot syrup around biscuits.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Sauce with thicken as dumplings cool.
The sweet potato rounds that I bought this time were labeled Yam Patties. Either one is fine,yams or sweet potatoes, the taste is the same. If you are not able to find frozen sweet potato patties, you can substitute canned sweet potatoes that you slice into approximately 1/2 inch slices.
