Everywhere I've seen or heard it, "Irish potatoes" was simply another

The recipe seeker may be looking for the candy which contains cream
cheese, a bit of potato, sugar, perhaps coconut, rolled into balls and
dusted in cinnamon. We see them in PA around St. Pats.

2 boxes Conf. sugar 1 8oz pkg cream cheese
2 tbl vanilla 1 7oz pkg. coconut
Soften cream cheese, mix all ingredients except cinnamon. Shape into
balls and roll in cinnamon. Refrigerate. Makes 3-4 lb candy. This is my
favorite candy. Bob
