Peanut Butter Pinwheels


4-6 Tbsp. peanut butter
3 Tbsp. leftover mashed potatoes
1 lb. powdered sugar
food coloring (optional)

Put mashed potatoes into a bowl.  Add 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar and mix well until smooth and liquidy.  A few drops of food coloring can be added at this point, if you wish.

Keep adding sifted powdered sugar 1/4 - 1/2 cup at a time and mixing well, until consistency of Play Dough.  Form into a ball.  Divide in half.

Place half of the dough onto waxed paper covered with sifted powdered sugar.  Sift more powdered sugar over the dough, then cover with another sheet of waxed paper and roll with a rolling pin until thin.   Spread with a layer of peanut butter (plain or chunky).  Roll into jelly roll shape, then cut into 1/4 inch sections and place onto waxed paper or serving dish.   Cover and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

If you screw up when making the jelly roll, you can always form the peanut butter/dough mixture ito little balls and cover with more powdered sugar.  Repeat for second half of dough.
