They aren't a traditional "cookie", but potato candy can be cut with cookie cutters. Instead of rolling like in the recipe, just layer one roll of the potato candy, spread peanut butter, and add another layer of potato candy, then cookie-cutter it! If you need to make it firmer, you can put it in the freezer on a cookie sheet.
The recipe is super simple, too:
1/2 cup mashed potatoes
Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes and powder sugar till it's firm enough to roll. The mixture will become very wet; just keep adding powdered sugar. roll out on powdered sugar like noodles. Cover with peanut butter. Roll into jelly roll cut into small pieces. Very rich!
There's a good holiday sugar cookie recipe in Vegan Family Favorites. I make them every year. They roll, they cut with cutters, we frost and decorate. So good.
You can get the cookbook for just $6.72. I'm taking it out of print as soon as all the rest of the copies sell, so I'm selling the remainders at cost. Free shipping too. Not making any profit on this at all, just want to get the rest of them into loving hands.
I'm in a new line of work (see signature) and I sold vegfamily so I don't really have a vehicle for promoting it now. It's a lot of time and effort to manage book sales and I'm too busy and the profit is so small that it's not worth it to me to keep printing them and have them sit in the garage.
I have less than 200 copies left, so I'm really just selling them at cost. with shipping and the envelope I am probably taking a small loss with each sale, actually, but it's worth it to me not to have to throw them away, burn them, etc.
