My great aunt used to make this years ago and I remember eating it as a child and thinking that it was the most heavenly stuff ever! After trying several different recipes (many of them requiring that the outer part be a divinity), I think I finally found a recipe that tastes the same, but it is MUCH easier and much less messy!

Ingredients

2 lb
powdered sugar
6 Tbsp
melted butter
1 Tbsp
vanilla
1/2 c
milk
peanut butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all ingredients together (except for the peanut butter). The consistency should be that of a pie dough. Separate the dough into four parts.
2
Cover your pastry board with a small amount of powdered sugar to help with rolling the dough. Roll the dough out like a pie crust. I roll mine into a rectangle. Do not roll out too thin.
3
Spread as much peanut butter out onto the flattened dough as you want (I just use enough to cover it thoroughly). Then roll the dough up like you would a jelly roll. Refrigerate and then cut into slices. ENJOY!

OK I chilled it and it looks awful...I do mean awful...I wouldn't give this to anyone... It doesn't slice well at all...if u are searching for a pinwheel recipe steer clear of this one...I'm not trying to be mean I just wouldn't want anyone to waste their time and money on this...this goes down as the worst put together recipe I have ever got online..and I try new recipes every week....plan on lots more sugar needed and do not melt the butter just soften it and add your milk a little at a time so u don't make a sticky goop like I did I think u will find you will not need it all and lower vanilla from tbsp to tsp... Just my opinion... How would we know if we can't count on people to review on their expierences...wish I would have listened to the negative ones on here..they were absolutely right

Okay this did not turn out for me....I repeat it did not work!!! I have made this candy for over 15 years using a sweetened condensed milk recipe and always have good luck... However I'm Christmas candy making tonight and ran out of the sw. Cond. Milk so I thought I would try this one....OK it is a goopy mess...I used lots and lots and lots of extra sugar to try and make a workable dough...nothing worked...I could not even spread pbutter...way too much milk and shouldn't have melted butter, should have just softened...I have it chilling now, gonna see what it does chilled...wish I hadn't wasted my ingredients on this! And if it takes more sugar to make it work than you should add it to the recipe...if I'm gonna just keep adding ingredients till something works than why even bother using someone else's recipe ..

You needed to add more confectioner sugar, to thicken it. Good luck :)

MY MOM, AUNTS AND GRANDMOTHER MADE THIS ALL OF THE TIME WHILE I WAS GROWING UP... THE ONLY DIFFERENCE WAS THAT THEY USED CONDENSED SWEETENED MILK... SUUUUUUPER SWEET... LOL #MEMORIES
