I altered the recipe just a little.
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (room temperature)
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners' sugar ( Don't cut back on the sugar, or the balls won't form well.)
2 1/2 cups flaked coconut
In a bowl, beat the butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Then add the vanilla and confectioners' sugar; beat until smooth. Mix well, it may be hard to use your mixer on this, so you can use your hands. Then mix in the coconut. You can either roll into balls or potato shapes, and then roll the balls into a bowl of cinnamon. Place onto a cookie sheet with wax paper and chill to set. You can roll potatoes in cinnamon again for a darker color.
