Vanessa's Story

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!


2 lb
powdered sugar
6 Tbsp
melted butter

1 Tbsp
1/2 c
peanut butter

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all ingredients together (except for the peanut butter). The consistency should be that of a pie dough. Separate the dough into four parts.
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.
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!
