Pinwheel Candy

100_4885

 It is raining outside today.  We did not want to go to the building to get decorations so we just decided to make some candy.  I usually make this only at Christmas time but I should make it more often as it is one of everyone’s favorite.   This recipe came from a dear friend of mine and I have used it now for about 25 years.  Wow, that makes me feel old(maybe I should leave that sentence out).   Anyway the recipe is:

1/4 cup butter-softened, 1 tsp vanilla.  Gradually add in 1 box powdered sugar.  You will need to add a little evaporated milk at the end-only add about 1 tbsp at a time.  1-3 tbsp should be all you will need.  It needs to be a little dry.  Roll out and spread on peanut butter.  Roll up candy length wise and put in fridge until chilled.  Cut and enjoy.

Just a little note about the lady who gave me this recipe.  Her name was Vanessa Looney and she was one of the finest Christian ladies I have ever known.  When it became obvious to those who loved her that it would soon be time for her to be with the Lord, she made a profound statement to me.  We were talking and she said “You know, I am not afraid of dying.  I have lived my entire life for this moment.  I will finally see my Jesus.”  I consider this one of the most important statements a Christian could ever make-that we would all live our lives for the moment we will see Him.   Just a little remembering on my part. 

Well, I best be going.  My girls want to play a game of cards.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
