A Tribute to the Matriarch of our Family.

Are you a member of my family? Have you eaten at one of my family functions? If so, then you know and love many of the recipes I have listed as my Grandmas'. If not, then you must try these for yourself!!!!!!

Grandma’s Peanut Butter Candy


2-3 Tbs. Milk

½ lbs. Powdered Sugar

¼ tsp Vanilla

¼ Cup Peanut Butter

¼ Cup Powdered Sugar for dusting


In a bowl combine 1/2 lbs. of Powdered Sugar, Vanilla and about 2 ½ Tbs. of Milk. Stir. The goal is to create dough, if it is too moist, add more sugar, if it is not binding, add more milk. Once a sticky dough is created sprinkle with powdered sugar to make it easier to work with. Divide into two balls. On a cutting board or work surface, covered in powdered sugar, roll out your dough to a disk about ½ inches thick. Don’t worry about perfection, this requires no skill, and the hard work is already done! Spread a generous amount of peanut butter over the disc. Roll the disc into a log and roll the log for a few seconds to make it longer! Cut off small pieces with a butter knife. Repeat for second ball of dough. Place on tray lined with wax paper and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
