Homemade Peanut Butter...

Elizabeth received a new cookbook for Christmas, Sesame Street C is for Cooking, and she LOVES it. The first recipe she wanted to make was peanut butter.

The recipe is very simple and, with the help of my blender, we whipped it up in no time!! When it was first finished, it was warm and runny. But after it spent the night in the refrigerator, it was PERFECT!! It was even more perfect on a piece of toast. Yum!!

Cookie Monster's Homemade Peanut Butter

1 pound (3 cups) dry roasted peanuts, unsalted or lightly salted
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil

In large bowl, combine peanuts with oil. With a spoon, stir to mix well.

Pour the oiled peanuts into a food processor (I used a blender). Process until very smooth, about 3-4 minutes.

Using a rubber spatula, transfer the peanut butter to a container with a tight-fitting lid. Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
