Potato Candy

1 med. potato, peeled
1 tsp. vanilla
2 lbs. powdered sugar (Give or Take)
peanut butter, smooth or chunky

Boil potato until well done; drain.  Mash with electric mixer; add
vanilla then the powdered sugar gradually until batter is very stiff - about
like a pie crust.  Amount of sugar depends on the size of the potato.  Roll
out into 2 - 1/8" thick rectangles on waxed paper that has been dusted with
powdered sugar.  Dust the rolling pin also.  Spread each rectangle with
peanut butter clear to the edges of dough.  Roll up from long edge like
a jelly roll.  Wrap in waxed paper and chill in refrigerator.  When ready
to slice, remove from fridge about 1/2 hour before.  Slice in 1/2" or
thinner slices.  These pack well in boxes or tins.  Put a piece of waxed paper
between layers.
