Irish Potatoes
Brought to you from CraftSayings.com with leprechaun help!

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
4 ounces regular cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 ounces confectioner sugar
7 ounces sweetened flaked coconut (about 2 &1/2 cups)
ground cinnamon for rolling

Cream together the butter and cream cheese in a large bowl. Add the vanilla and confectioner sugar and beat until a ball is formed. Stir in the coconut with a spoon.  Roll small amounts in your hands to form potatoes.  Remember potatoes are not perfectly shaped!  Roll your potatoes in a dish of cinnamon. Place on a cookie sheet, cover and chill until firm, about one hour. Now roll in cinnamon a second time for extra dirty potatoes. Note: If you find a green Irish potato mixed in, a leprechaun has visited to bring you good luck and sometimes a pot of gold!  Yields about 5 dozen.
