Flitch Recipe

Since several people have asked for it, and a few folks have stumbled across my site looking for the recipe for flitch, I thought I'd share it with you here.

1 small white potato, boiled and cooled
1 box of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
Creamy peanut butter (You can also use Nutella hazelnut spread)

Place potato in med bowl; remove skin, mash and add vanilla. Mix in enough powdered sugar to make firm dough. (It will be watery at use plenty of powdered sugar). Roll dough out onto waxed paper sprinkled with powdered sugar. It is a good idea to place another piece of waxed paper between the dough and the rolling pin. Place rolled out dough, sandwiched between waxed paper, in the freezer for 10-15 minutes so that it's easier to work with. Carefully remove the top piece of waxed paper and spread peanut butter onto dough. Next, roll up like a jelly roll. Wrap roll with waxed paper and freeze or refrigerate for at least one hour before slicing. Note: This candy is extremely sweet. It can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer for several days.

Flitch is very rich, like fudge. My husband showed me how to make this not long after we married. So I give him the credit as his family in Pennsylvania made it a lot on Christmas, but of course you can make it anytime. Hope you enjoy this.
