If you are just starting out for the first time on making there cookies(potato candy). Use a small potato, size of golf ball. You will use a little over half a bag of powdered sugar. More if mixture is still to wet when you try and remove it from the bowl. You will need to use powdered sugar to kneed the mixture like bread dough. When no longer tackey, put powdered sugar on rolling pin and roll out. Follow recipe. Place wax paper between each layer of cookies(candy)to keep from sticking together in air tight containe. Hope this advice helps. :)

I haven't tried this particular recipe, but potatoe candies are a classic at home and we do it without fiexed quantities, because it all depends on the size of the potatoe. Therefore, one should try to get the smallest potatoe possible and add sugar until it forms a dough. You can always cook another potatoe if you find you don't have enough candies in the end (there are never enough...)
