Sweet Potato Dumplings

Recipe by papergoddess

I found this recipe in a local church cookbook. I have not tried it myself, but I thought it sounded very interesting. I might experiment on my guests for Thanksgiving! Any other brave souls out there?

I am a fairly new cook and was looking for something was easy and tasty and found this. Well I fix them for Sunday dinner, and it was a hit, but my little brother and I agreed that you should add sugar and cinnamon and some vanilla to the can sweet potatoes. Also next time I may have too bake them at 30 minutes, instead of 45. My mother kept saying it felt like she was eating dessert during dinner...but the rest of us agree it was good with dinner.
