Shannon here :)
As my name would suggest, my family loves St. Patrick's Day! I always try to get a brand of corned beef with Shannon in the name (I can't help myself). And we all go to my mom's for an American St. Patrick's Day dinner!
She makes my favorite Irish Soda Bread without the caraway seeds - sorry - they are just gross! 🤷♂️🤣 And since I have an intolerance to raisins (I know - TMI), she has started adding blueberries and it is so DELICIOUS! Who doesn't love fresh blueberries!?
My husband eats waaaaaaaay too much cabbage... 🤢
BUT all week long my kids have been asking... "Has Grandma made the Irish potato candies yet?"
We are PA people, specifically the good part of PA 😉😜 (Philadelphia!) Where Irish potato candies are a staple to this holiday. Tonight the boys went to Grandma's and helped roll the potato candies!
Want to try some for yourself? Here's the recipe:
GRANDMA SHEILA'S IRISH POTATO CANDIES
8 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1 tsp real vanilla extract
3 oz coconut
1 stick (1/4 cup) butter
2 pounds of Confectioners Sugar
Mix cream cheese, vanilla, coconut, butter and sugar well. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Roll into 1 inch balls and then roll into cinnamon. ENJOY!
