Yam Patty Wraps

I don't know where this recipe originated but I first was told about it a couple of years ago.  I do know that several ladies from New Freedom Church in Webb were preparing it and receiving praise from everyone who was fortunate enough to get a bite.  I was not given a name for the recipe when I received it, so I have named it Yam Patty Wraps.  It's delicious any time of the year but I first made it for my family for Thanksgiving. 

                                                          Yam Patty Wraps

Yam Patties                                                         2 cups sugar
Grand's Flaky Biscuits                                       2 Tbsp. Karo Syrup
1 stick butter                                                       cinnamon
2 1/2 cups water

Bring butter, water, sugar, and syrup to a boil.  Boil for 18 min.

Remove biscuits from container and separate.  Take each biscuit and pull apart and you will have two biscuit halves.  Take each biscuit half  and flatten.  You can flatten the biscuit with your hands.  Cut each yam patty in half lengthwise.  Put a yam half on the flattened biscuit.  Wrap the biscuit around the yam patty.  Place in a large pyrex dish that has been sprayed with Pam.  Continue this process until you have all of the biscuits wrapped around a yam patty and placed in the pyrex dish. 

Pour boiling mixture over the biscuits.  Sprinkle the biscuits with cinnamon. 

Bake at 400 degrees for 45 min. 

I like to use Watkins Cinnamon when I bake.  Wal-Mart now has Watkins spices and flavors. 

I had no idea I was preparing such a delicious dish when I tried this recipe.   I think you will also be delighted with Yam Patty Wraps.
