Recipe by LARavenscroft
Both of my grandmothers and my mother always made this at Christmas. It's a must have here at our house.

I have been making this recipe for years, It is so yummy. I sometimes substitute the vanilla extract for other flavor extracts such as mint, orange, hazelnut, rum....... For Easter I roll the mixture into little balls and roll them in melted chocolate, then refrigerate them so the chocolate hardens, the kids LOVE them.
- 1 medium potato, boiled and mashed (no salt)
