Directions:
in mixing bowl, combine 16 oz sugar,butter, milk, and vanilla { should be stiff and dough -like }.

Chill for a few minutes to help prevent sticking.

Divide dough into 2 balls, and roll each ball out to pie crust thickness { use parchment or wax paper and plenty of powdered sugar both over and under dough to keep it from sticking } .

Heat peanut butter until runny and easily spreadable -not too hot- and spread evenly over rolled dough { mom did not heat peanut butter } .

Roll dough into a log { you may have to sprinkle a little more powdered sugar on it as you go to help with stickiness }.

Chill 1 hour and then slice into 1/4 pinwheels- keep refrigerated.
