• 1 stick butter (slightly softened)
• 1 teaspoon vanilla

Add vanilla and milk. Use your hands or a
kneading attachment for your mixer to mix these ingredients
Divide the dough into 3 pieces. Dust a
sheet of wax paper with powdered sugar. Place 1 of the 3
pieces of dough onto the wax paper. Dust with powdered sugar
and place another sheet of wax paper on top. Use a rolling pin
to flatten the sugar dough.
Remove the top sheet of wax paper. Spread
1/3 of the peanut butter onto the sugar dough.
Roll the dough into a log and wrap with plastic
wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Repeat with the remaining
two pieces of sugar dough.
After 1 hour remove the logs from the
refrigerator and cut into slices for serving.
