My mother-in-law makes this candy every Christmas. She came from a large family and this was an inexpensive treat for them as children. It is very rich so one piece goes a long way.
In small saucepan cover whole, unpeeled potato with water and boil until tender.
Drain, peel and place in large mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer; add butter and vanilla.
Slowly add the powdered sugar, mixing until you have a stiff dough.
Roll out on a powdered-sugared surface. Spread with a layer of peanut butter.
Roll up as for a jelly roll. Chill until firm and then slice into 1/2-inch confections.
