Peanut Butter Pinwheels

I seem to be on a no bake kick this week. So, I bring you this great sweet treat,
                                                           the Peanut Butter Pinwheel..

If you are needing something last minute to whip together for a Christmas Treat, this is it! You probably already have the ingredients and it is simple to make and does not take a lot of time, yet it seems to be one of those treats few people make but everybody loves.

So, here we go...
Peanut Butter Pinwheels
From Granny's Kitchen: Ms. Theone Leffel Neel

  • 1 lb. confectioners' sugar
  • 1 stick of butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • dash of salt
  • evaporated milk, enough to moisten, about 2 T.
  • ~ 1 c. peanut butter
Using your hands mix together sugar, butter, vanilla, salt, and enough milk to moisten. Mix until smooth and creamy.
*Loco Cocoa tip: Can mix ingredients initially with a spoon, but you really do get a better consistency mixing by hand, really mushing to get a smooth consistency. Mushing?? Is that a technical kitchen term, I believe it is now!

Divide mixture in half and roll each piece 1/4" thick in an oblong shape in between sheets of wax paper. Remove top sheet of wax paper and spread each half with peanut butter.


Roll jellyroll fashion (starting with long side) and wrap in wax paper. Chill in refrigerator for at least 30 min. or in freezer for 15 min. then slice.

Next step, enjoy!!!

You can make these ahead of time and freeze. Please note if you slice before you freeze they will stick together and may not be as pretty as if you slice when ready to present!

Either way they still taste so yummy, the sweetness of the sugar with the salty of the peanut butter, mmmm....

Happy Rolling,
