Tuesday's Romance of Cookery and Housekeeping – Peanut Butter Fruit Roll Ups


1 1/2 cup flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons butter
1/2+ cup milk
3 tablespoons JIF creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons golden raisins*

  • Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Cut in 2 tablespoons of cold butter until it reaches a consistency of cornmeal.
  • Add the milk, mixing until a soft dough forms.
  • Pat into a rectangular shape 1/2 inch thick on a floured surface.
  • Cream the peanut butter and 2 teaspoons butter and spread onto dough.
  • Sprinkle the raisins randomly on top.
  • Roll up like cinnamon rolls.
  • Slice off 1/2 inch rolls and place in a well greased baking dish.
  • Bake 18-20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
*I have used cut up chunks of dried apricots and they were really yummy too. If you prefer the original recipe called for currants instead of golden raisins, 1 tablespoon less of peanut butter and lard instead of the 2 tablespoons of butter.
