My grandmother always did the recipe with 1 medium potato, 1 stick of butter (room temp.), pinch of salt, 1 tsp. vanilla & add powder sugar till forms dough. Roll out on powdered sugar sprinkled board covered with wax paper. Spread with peanut butter (add coconut & chopped nuts if you want) & roll tightly. Makes 2-3 rolls. Refrigerate & slice into pieces. Nothing new to add for the recipe.. just a FYI
Use cotton string to cut logs into slices. This prevents breakage or misshapen pieces.
My mom used butterscotch pudding, butter and powdered sugar to make the "dough," Then rolled it out spread it with peanut butter, cut it into 3 x 5 " squares, rolled them, refrigerated them and sliced them. Delicious!

I used to make mine with a potato but now I just use one jar of whipped cake icing and add powdered sugar to make a dough. Roll it out add peanut butter, roll it up and slice. I can't tell the difference in taste and it fooled my whole family. Very easy!
If you still need the recipe, a good one is a stick of softened butter and about a pd of powdered sugar, mix the two together and add 1-2 tablespoons of milk till it is a spreadable consistency. spread out to into a rectangle about 1/4" thick on a piece of wax paper dusted with powdered sugar and spread with creamy peanut butter, leave about a 1/2" thick border around the peanut butter. start to roll using the wax paper as a guide and then refrigerate. When a little harder slice and enjoy.

The recipe I have uses a small potato. Peel, cube and cover with water. Cook until tender, pour off water and put in a bowl. Mash and then start adding powdered sugar. Continue to stir and add powered sugar until you have a dough that your are able to roll out. Roll it out thin and spread with peanut butter. Roll it up jelly roll style and cut in 1/2 inch slices. You can use food coloring to color the dough if you want.

Does anyone have a peanut butter roll candy recipe to share? I think it is made with confectioners sugar and milk, then rolled out and peanut butter spread on top. Roll and then cut into slices.

Make a dough with the powdered sugar (you don't need to add much liquid), dust the surface with some powdered sugar and roll out the dough like you would for sugar cookie cut outs. Spread with peanut butter. Roll and cut into 1/2 inch slices. Keep these covered or they will dry out. (01/20/2006)
Mix milk, egg white, and sugar together to form a dough. Roll out on clean surface that has been sprinkled with confectioners sugar or flour. Roll out until it s about 1/4 inch thick. Spread the peanut butter on the dough and roll up. Cut into slices and refrigerate for about an hour. Enjoy! (01/21/2006)
Boil potato and drain water off. In a bowl mash the potato and butter together. Pour in confectioners sugar and mix good with hand. Wash hand and dry. Get a sheet of wax paper. Put the mixture on the paper, make sure you don't get the mixture off the paper. Spread mixture out. Put on a cookie sheet and cool in the refrigerator.
Take out of the refrigerator and spread the peanut butter over the mixture. Start at one end of the wax paper and begin to roll mixture until you have rolled all of the mixture into a roll. Put back in the frig and let chill. Take roll out and pull back the wax paper and cut into pinwheels. Place in a covered container and leave out or put in frig. It does not get hard. Good luck and don't make a mess. (10/18/2006)

Add 1 lb. of sugar and margarine together then add your vanilla and add milk slowly a little at a time til it forms a ball. Sprinkle confectioners sugar on some wax paper and roll out dough. Spread peanut butter on it and cut in half. Take clean knife and slide it under one half and roll into log. Then do the same on the other half. Refrigerate. I usually leave in fridge about 2 hours. Then slice into pieces. Everyone loves it here. Hope it is what you all are looking for. (11/04/2008)
Old Fashion Peanut Butter Roll
First beat 3 egg whites until stiff. Prepare the surface to roll out the candy. Cover the surface with wax paper and spread a thick layer of powdered sugar.
Next mix all ingredients except vanilla in a large pot and boil. Stirring continuously, until ball forms. (Like when making fudge or candies) the ball should be hard and have a soft crack. Add vanilla.
Slowly pour the mixture over the egg whites while mixing with a blender the whole time. Continue to mix until the candy has cooled and resembles the texture of marshmallow cream. Pour onto powdered sugar and roll thin. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter. Roll up and cut. (cut the pieces using a piece of thread to keep it's form and layers). (11/23/2008)
Just mix together and then roll out the dough onto wax or parchment paper. You may need to cut into 2 rolls. Spread peanut butter to desired amount and then roll. Refrigerate for at least an hour for it to set, but not too stiff for easy cutting. (12/21/2008)
