Sweet Potato Balls

Ruth Drummond

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla
  • Marshmallows
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 3 cups corn flakes, crushed

Peel and boil sweet potatoes until well done, drain well. Cream together sugar, butter, egg and flour. Mix with potatoes. If potatoes are soft, add a small amount of flour and cream well. Place in refrigerator until chilled, then spoon into small balls using marshmallows for center. Crush corn flakes and roll sweet potato and marshmallow balls in corn flake crumbs. Fry in deep fat until brown or bake on greased cookie sheet until brown. Makes about 15 medium sized balls.
