Dr. Laura Trice, author of The Wholesome Junk Food Cookbook, has done it again! These pretty pinwheels make an enjoyable (and yummy!) activity that the whole family can participate in during the holidays!

Yield: 6 dozen

Potato Candy (pg. 48)


2 teaspoons organic butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup cooked mashed potato

4 ½ cups organic powdered sugar, sifted

2 cups peanut butter, fresh ground or unsweetened from a jar


Combine the butter, vanilla and mashed potato in a bowl and mix well. Add the powdered sugar and mix until very thick, almost like pastry dough, adding more sugar if necessary.

Dust a sheet of wax paper with powdered sugar. Place the dough on the wax paper and roll it out into a rectangular piecrust, approximately 10 x 12 inches.

Spread the peanut butter over the dough to 1/8- to ¼-inch thick, covering the entire surface. Roll up lengthwise like a jellyroll, and chill in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.

Slice into ¼-inch pieces and serve.
