This is a recipe I got from my mother. It is very easy to make and is a delicious candy to serve on any occasion.
1/4 cup mashed potato flakes
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1 pinch of salt
1 sixteen ounce package of confectioner's sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
Combine mashed potato flakes, milk, vanilla flavoring, and salt in a bowl. Mix well. Stir in the confectioner's sugar until it reaches the consistency of dough. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Place a length of wax paper on your countertop. Take the potato dough from the fridge and knead it into a rectangular shape about 1/4 inch thick. Spread the peanut butter onto the dough until you've completely covered it. Then, being careful not to "tear" your dough, roll it into a log. Refrigerate for another hour.
Cut your candy into pinwheels and serve.
