Awesome Irish potatoes! This recipe is just like the ones I remember getting from a bakery in Pennsylvania (Philly area). I actually made a bunch for a party and used amounts the recipe says to use for 120 servings. It sounds like alot but it definitely didn't make 120 balls. I used 1 cup less of confectioners sugar because of the reviews here saying the recipe was too sweet. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the recipe. One tip is to not use a lot of cinnamon in the bag. Only put maybe 1-2 Tablespoons in the bag and place about 6 or 8 balls in it and shake. When I placed all of the recommended cinnamon in the bag the potatoes had too much on them and tasted awful, a mouthful of cinnamon. ick. One other tip is to have one hand slightly wet with water---when rolling this keeps the balls moist and allows them to roll up nicely. Great recipe overall!!
