• Beat 1 egg white until fluffy. Add:
• 3/4 cup light brown sugar
• 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix above ingredients well. Stir in 2 cups pecans. Spoon on baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes at 250 degrees. cut off stove, leaving candy in oven for 30 minutes. After removing from oven, place in tight container.


• 1 and one-half box of sifted powdered sugar (confectioner's)
• 1 small peeled white potato
• 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
• 1 16 oz.jar of peanut butter
Boil a small peeled white potato (about the size of a large egg) until it is about to turn into mush and a fork will easily go through it and back out. Drain and put in a large bowl.

Add one teaspoon vanilla flavoring and continue to mash with fork until it looks like a thick liquid. Begin to add sifted powdered sugar a small amount at a time, stirring into this mix. You'll be surprised to see that you'll use a box or more of sugar before it reaches the desired "clay like" consistancy. Dust your work area with more powdered sugar and roll this lump of claylike dough out into a thin sheet. Trim edges to a rectangular shape and spread peanut butter over the entire area. Taking your time, gently roll the peanut butter covered dough into a "log". Wrap with Reynolds wrap and chill in freezer for about two hours before moving it to the fridge.

To serve, cut into thin slices. They'll look like a pretty white confection with a swirl of peanut butter. This is very sweet--so the thinner the slices the better; best served with strong cappuccino or coffee.


Sometimes it doesn't pay to cut corners, but you have my word, this one is every bit as good as the "stand and stir the day away" recipe your grandmother used.
