1 package powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 jar peanut butter (creamy or chunky per taste)

Directions:
Directions:
Bake red potato until soft and fluffy. Then cut in half and using a fork or spoon scrape out center into a bowl. Mash completely so that there are no lumps left. Then add about 1 cup of powdered sugar to start. As you mix this with a fork, it will turn into a liquid. Add the vanilla. Then add more powdered sugar in increments of 1/2 cup until a soft dough is formed. Prepare plastic wrap with a generous layer of powdered sugar creating a rolling surface. Now turn out dough onto the rolling surface and add more powdered sugar as you carefully roll out dough into a 1/8" thick rectangular sheet. Carefully spread peanut butter to cover entire surface 1/8" thick. Now using the plastic wrap, carefully roll it up like a jelly roll while peeling the plastic off. Using a sharp knife, slice roll into approximately 1/2 in. thick slices. Lay slices onto a cookie sheet so they are not touching and allow to cure in a cool dry place for approximately an hour until white and dry on both sides.
