Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Tracy Martin


1/4 cup nut butter filling
1 lb powdered sugar
1/4 cup boiled white potatoes


Mash the potatoes with the box of powdered sugar until it makes a dough. Pat dough out on a sheet of wax paper. Spread of thin layer of nut butter over the dough, and roll it up jelly-roll style. Wrap and refrigerate overnight.

To serve: slice the roll into 1/2 inches slices.


The dough is very sweet, so alternative filling would need to be not-so-sweet.


The original recipe uses peanut butter, but you can substitute soynut butter or sunflower butter.
