WAFERS

1. Boil potato in unsalted water. Brain water. Mash thoroughly in mixing bowl. Add 2 cups (approx) icing sugar and mix

cup amounts) until you can form a ball in your hand without it being sticky. Sample to see if flavor is strong enough
3. Roll balls (tsp size). Place on waxed paper on cookie sheets. Press gently to flatten to 1/4 inch
4. Keep mixture covered with plastic wrap to slow to drying. Refrigerate overnight, if possible, with waxed paper
