Mary Beth's Menu - Irish Potatoes

Last Reply by teabear 1395347634.877 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

Nothing cures a sweet tooth quite like Irish Potatoes. And another thing I love about them is they can be shaped into ovals or balls in any size you want. Make them bite size and watch how fast they disappear! This recipe was given to me by Karen Kennedy. The recipe is from Kilkenny County, which is between Tipperary and Wexford in Southern Ireland. That is where Karen Kennedy's family resided.  Ingredients: 1 cup of powdered (confectioner's) sugar 1 cup sweetened coconut 1-1/2 tablespoons Half & Half creamer cinnamon Place coconut in a mixing bowl and spring sugar over...
