1 egg white
1/2 tsp grated orange rind
2 tsp lemon juice
Dash salt
2 cups sifted powdered sugar, firmly packed
2 tbsp powdered sugar
1/4 cup soft peanut butter


Beat egg white until stiff. Stir in orange rind, lemon juice, salt and 2 cups sugar until well blended. Sprinkle the 2 tbsp sugar over a piece of waxed paper, and turn the mixture out onto this.

Using a rolling pin rubbed with more sugar, roll out to 1/8 inch thick. Carefully spread the peanut butter over the sheet like jelly on a jelly roll.

Roll the sheet up like a jelly roll and wrap it in the waxed paper.
Lay the wrapped roll on a piece of cardboard to keep it straight and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour, then transfer to a covered candy box.
When ready to serve, cut in slices 1/4 inch thick.
