Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp. butter, softened
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1¼ cups flaked sweetened coconut
  • 1-2 tbsp. ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, beat the softened butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add the vanilla and confectioners' sugar; beat until smooth again. Stir in the coconut.
  2. Place dough in fridge for at least 1 hour (preferably 2) to harden enough so you can roll it into balls.
  3. Once chilled, roll into potato shapes and drop in the cinnamon to fully coat. Place onto a cookie sheet and chill to set. If desired, roll potatoes in cinnamon again for darker color. Serve cold and enjoy!
