Irish Potato Candy
March 18, 2006

We have grown up enjoying these sinful good candies and find this recipe able to produce "Irish P's" as good as those made by a local candy company known for these "Patty's Day" treats. I used some butter to grease the palms of my hands for rolling and I place the mixture back in the fridge for a few minutes once it starts to get too sticky to roll cleanly. We like the sharp contrast of the pure cinnamon coating with the creamy sweetness of the candy. A little powdered sugar mixed in with the cinnamon will reduce that sharpness, for those that don't. Prior reviews that have noted a "too buttery" taste must not have creamed the butter and cream cheese thoroughly. I cream the two of them together in one of my large stainless mixing bowls using using the back of a large 13.5" stock spoon until the color is uniform. I also combine the vanilla using this method. An electric mixer is almost a required item to combine the powdered sugar, unless you are really up for a work out with you wire whip! Enjoy
