I was a bit skeptical at first, but these turned out so cute and tasty! I did use more cinnamon than stated, and pouring some cinnamon in a plastic bag and shaking a few "potatoes" at a time worked a lot faster and less messy than rolling. Next year when my little girl is a bit older I'll have her help me...perfect for kids to do! Thanks so much for the recipe...everyone was in love with them.
My family loved these. Very easy and quick to make, too. I needed more than 1 tbl of cinnamon, but other than that, followed exact. Thanks!
Easy enough. However There is no directions as to what size to make them. I make a double batch, maybe got 5 dozen, probably a bit less. I'd maybe suggest teaspoon size if you want 5 dozen. If not, whatever size feels right for you. :)
I love this recipe, it is religious!
They were very tasty but a little twist. I used pumpkin spice instead of cinnamon.
I've been making these for well over 30 years. I only make them for Saint Paddy's Day so they are always a long awaited treat. I tint the cream cheese green and sometimes rool them in a mixture of cinnamon and a little chocolate powder. Also one or two drops of peppermint or butter flavoring is awesome. Fun to experiment with the flavors.
I made these into balls and dipped them in melted chocolate instead of the cinnamon. They were delicious. Just a little tip: When you melt chocolate wafers for dipping, add about 1/2 tsp. of solid shortening (Crisco, etc.). It makes the chocolate a little thinner.
Great recipe! I live overeseas so I have to take what I can find in the grocery store at times. So I could only get reduced fat tub cream cheese, but they still turned out fine! The rolling process was a little sticky/difficult but they've hardened up in the fridge quite nicely. Really delicious - same results as others a few others regarding quantity. My batch turned out to be about 3 dozen or so, but since I had problems rolling them mine were fairly large. I've loved these ever since I was a little girl and my boyfriend wants me to make them all the time now. Thanks!
I can't believe that I forgot to rate these! Made these sometime back but they are Very Good! Sweet and I definitely could only eat a few of them as they are rich! I rolled some in chocolate cocoa and some in cinnamon. I think everyone liked the cinnamon best if my memory serves me right. They definitely have to stay refrigerated and they do remind me of potatoes (mini versions) would go great as an appetizer with a movie party watching the Faith Like Potatoes Movie :) Thanks again for the cool recipe. I bet you could add some flavored extracts to this and not roll them in cinnamon and come up with some cool flavor creations. Maybe roll in cocoa and use orange extract or coconut extract with an almond inserted in the center :) yum may have to tinker some with that.
very tasty! they're basically like blobs of set-up cream cheese frosting... i did half with coconut and half without, and i liked the ones without better (though i normally love coconut, i didn't like the texture as much) ...also, little kids might think they look like potatoes, but my friends made poop jokes about them! (but they did all like them once they tried them)
