Peanut Butter

Made mainly from ground roasted peanuts and oil, peanut butter makes my mornings creamier. Love to have this food paste as the sandwich spread which I can enjoy during the taxi ride from my home to the office every morning. Oh yes, I don't waste my time sitting quietly and let my mind wonder around. Why not take the benefit of cool air conditioning and let myself have a nice breakfast? Seems like one morning might not be complete without peanut butter.

Will peanut butter taste just as good in a cheese pie then? Let's try...

Serves 10 persons

1. Crust
Prepare: 9 inch pie mould

- Digestive biscuits – ground > 200 grams
- Salted butter – melt > 100 grams

- Mix ground biscuits and melted butter and press into pie mould.
- Refrigerate for half an hour.

2. Pie Filling

- Cream cheese – room temperature > 200 grams
- Icing sugar – sift > 85 grams
- Fine peanut butter > 100 grams
- Vanilla essence > 1 teaspoon
- Whipping cream > 250 ml

- Combine cream cheese and icing sugar and beat until smooth.
- Add peanut butter and vanilla essence.
- Beat whipping cream until firm peaks form.
- Gently and gradually fold whipping cream into cream cheese mixture.
- Pour pie filling into crust.
- Refrigerate for 2 hours.

3. Decoration

- Whipping cream > 60 ml
- Salted butter > 3 teaspoons
- White chocolate – grate > 50 grams
- Roasted peanuts – crush moderately > 20 grams

- Put whipping cream and butter on a saucepan and cook over medium heat until butter completely melts.
- Remove from heat and fold in grated white chocolate and stir until chocolate is melted.
- Leave to cool for a while.
- Coat top of the pie with melted chocolate.
- Refrigerate for half an hour.
- Scatter crushed peanuts on top of chocolate in circular formation.
- Decorate with chocolate pieces and tuilles.
- Serve.
