Peanut Butter Pinwheels.
Standing in Trader Joe’s the other day I had a complete “space out”in front of the peanut butter. (…What I like to call a “Magnolia Moment.”) Everything around me disappeared. It was just me and the peanut butter. I was suddenly lost in thought thinking about my Dear Mama and the simple peanut butter candy she sometimes made for me as a child. I could see her beautiful smile as she rolled the candy into a log while letting me lick the peanut butter left on the spoon. Then she gave me a tiny sample of the final product before she slipped it into the refrigerator for what seemed like the longest hour in history!
Have you ever just gone blank while shopping? If you have, come on over and join me and let’s have a “Magnolia Moment” together while we eat Peanut Butter Pinwheels!

Peanut Butter Pinwheels
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
16 ounces peanut butter, creamy
1 teaspoon cold water, a little more if needed
- Sprinkle a sheet of wax paper with 1/4 cup powdered sugar and set another 1/4 cup aside.
- In a mixing bowl, add one box of sifted powdered sugar, the softened butter, and the water. Mix the ingredients together forming a soft ball. The ball should be smooth. If it is sticky, add a little powdered sugar. If it is stiff, add a sprinkle of water.
- Place the powdered sugar dough ball on the prepared wax paper. Sprinkle the ball with powdered sugar.
- Roll the candy dough ball out into a 1/4 inch thick rectangle.
- With a knife, slice off the uneven edges of the rectangle. (…Have a little taste of the cut edges.)
- Gently spoon the peanut butter onto the rectangle. Use the back of a spoon to spread it to the edges.
- Carefully lift the wax paper to lift a long edge and roll the peanut covered sheet into a log. (Avoid rolling the wax paper inside the log. Only use it to get the log started. )
- Cool the log in the refridgerator for one hour.
- Slice into 1/4 inch pieces. Enjoy!
Another goodie to try for National Peanut Butter Month.
