  • Place potato in a small pan and cover with water. Cook until very tender. Drain and place in a large bowl.
  • Use a hand mixer to beat the potato until it is lump-free.
  • Add 4 cups of powdered sugar and beat until mixed well.
  • Continue to mix powdered sugar in 1 cup at a time until thick. (It should have the consistency of putty or cookie dough.
  • Place on a large piece of waxed paper that has been lightly coated with powdered sugar. Sprinkle some more powdered sugar on top.
  • Roll potato mixture out into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle.
  • Spread evenly with peanut butter.

  • Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
