Irish Mashed-Potato Candies Recipe
1/2 C. mashed potatoes or yams
1/2 t. vanilla extract
1 lb. sifted confectioners' sugar
2 T. ground cinnamon
Mix mashed potatoes or yams and vanilla extract until combined. Starting with 1 cup, gradually blend in enough sugar to form a stiff, nonsticky dough. (The potatoes' moisture content will determine how much sugar is absorbed.)
One teaspoonful at a time, form the potato-sugar mixture into irregular spheres (to resemble new potatoes). Set them on waxed-paper-lined trays to dry slightly before coating.
Toss candies, a few at a time, in a small plastic bag with ground cinnamon to coat. Shake off the excess.
Cover. Store in a cool, dry place.
