Peanut Butter and Jelly Rolls

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Connie K

A peanut lover's dream - chopped peanuts are swirled into a peanut butter dough and topped with peanut butter frosting. From Pillsbury's 'The Complete Book of Baking'. Posted in response to a request, I've not yet tried this recipe.

These were just incredible! The first batch I made I followed the recipe to the letter; the second batch I used marshmallow creme as a filling (added after the rolls were baked) for a "Fluffernutter" type tribute! I left some of both kinds at home for us and took the rest to work; neither made it past the morning!! I just can't get over how amazing these are! Thank you so much for answering my request!
