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.
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!

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.
