  1. This is interesting…. I have never seen a dessert recipe with potato… I know my mom makes potato dough (dough with potatoes inside, sometimes chunky), which is then filled with either cheese or cheese & ham & then fried… but it’s savoury… I guess you can make it sweet…. But we just never did… ๐Ÿ™‚
