Old-fashioned pinwheel candies made with mashed potatoes and filled with peanut butter.
1 medium potato
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (1-pound) box powdered sugar
Peanut butter to taste (smooth or crunchy)
- In small saucepan cover whole, unpeeled potato with water and boil until tender. Drain, peel and place in large mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer; add butter and vanilla. Slowly add the powdered sugar, mixing until you have a stiff dough.
- Roll out on a powdered-sugared surface. Spread with a layer of peanut butter. Roll up as for a jelly roll. Chill until firm and then slice into 1/2-inch pinwheels.
Makes about 1 1/2 pounds candy.
