Boil 1 medium-size, peeled Irish potato in lightly salted water until done.
Drain and mash potato with a fork, leaving no lumps Sift a 1-pound pkg. of
confectioners' sugar in a bowl. Take out 1/4 cup and set aside. Make a
valley in the bowl of sugar and start adding small amounts of potato,
mixing well in the center of the sugar. Continue adding potato until the
sugar and potato make a nice shiny ball. Dust a large sheet of waxed paper
with some of the set aside sugar. Roll ball out on the sugared paper with a
rolling pin until it's very thin. (This is best done between the waxed
paper). Remove top paper and cover with smooth peanut butter. Roll it up
and place in the refrigerator. When it is cold, slice it into 1/4 inch
thick slices. Place the slices on waxed paper. Let the slices remain there
until they hold their shape.
