While I appreciate the positive reviews, I must note that I thought I was a good baker. lol...this for me, turned out to be one huge hot mess. My potato was small, so I thought, I ended up using over 2 lbs of confectioner sugar (after the first 2 lbs, I quit counting)and it would still not form into a "rollable dough". So I tried to let it "set up", then spread the peanut butter and rolled it...sort of, lol. I ended up having to throw it all away. So I now had to throw it away and am concerned that I have burnt up my cuisinart stand mixer. It has stunk up the whole house.

My great-grandmother made a version of this recipie since she was a child. We do not use the vanilla but the rest is exactly the same. After spreading the peanut butter we roll it up like a jelly roll, slice it, and place in layers on a plate (with wax paper between) to refrigerate. It tastes much better cold.
