Over all, the dessert was very tasty, especially warmed up a bit. I thought the directions were a bit confusing so I went my own way. I put the sliced sweet potatoes in an even layer over the cobbler batter, then poured the syrup mixture over the top of the potatoes and baked it for 40 minutes. Being diabetic I substituted splenda and brown sugar splenda for the sugars: 3/4 cup granulated splenda both times and 1/4 cup brown sugar splenda. I also added a dash of nutmeg to the cinnamon. When making the cobbler batter, I increased the amount of flour to 1 1/2 cups to make it more like a traditional biscuit topping. There was too much syrup, so I poured some off after the dessert cooled. Next time I make this, I am going to cut the butter down to 6 tablespoons and the water down to 1 cup + 2 tablespoons to see if it helps.
