My grandmother's recipe for Potato Candy (also sometimes called Peanut Butter Pinwheels).
I recommend reading through the blog post before beginning, as it includes lots of tips.
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Chilling Time (total, for potatoes and for filling) 2 hours
Total Time 50 minutes
* Use russet potatoes, peel, dice, and boil until tender. Drain potatoes and then mash well. Allow potatoes to sit at room temperature until completely
cooled before making your filling. You want to use just
the potatoes, unseasoned, no milk/salt/pepper/etc. added. Thanksgiving leftovers unfortunately would not work well for this recipe.
Another (peanut butter-free) version of this candy can be made by rolling the filling into cigar shapes and rolling in 2 Tablespoons of cinnamon for Cinnamon Cigar Candy.
I've also used this potato candy recipe to make my old fashioned Easter Egg Candy
