2 Ingredient Homemade Peanut Butter

2 Peanutbutter


Wait!!! I know what you are thinking! You need a super expensive blender or food processor to make homemade peanut butter. NOPE! I have used many blenders in my day but my favorite is a Ninja. I am not being paid or given any products to write about it. I’m just telling you my favorite. :)

The Ninja I have comes with the blender and a food processor. You can pay upwards of $600 for a nice blender/food processor. The Ninja is a much better price! You can find it HERE if you are interested.

Okay,Okay
Back to the Peanut Butter!

So… my husband tried some homemade peanut butter at work and loved it. My first thought was… I love my JIF too much to give it up. He bought some salted peanuts at Walmart (they come in the big containers for pretty cheap) and convinced me to make it.

It was so easy and I am never going back! It really was so good! I have tried a few recipes and this one is my favorite!

Ingredients
  • 4 cups dry roasted peanuts (salted or unsalted, whatever you prefer! I have tried both and like salted a little more.)
  • 2 teaspoons of peanut oil (Vegetable oil will work too)

Instructions
  1. Place the peanuts and oil in the bowl of a food processor and and process for 2 to 3 minutes. That may seem like a long time but it takes that long to get creamy. Stop it every 45 seconds and scrap down the sides.
  2. I have made it a few ways. The longer you keep it in the blender, the smoother it will become. I like mine a little crunchy so I didn’t process it as long.
  3. Store the peanut butter in a glass jar or airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. I stir mine with a knife a few times before each use.
  4. Makes about 2 cups

When making peanut butter I would suggest using a NinjaVitamix, or Blendtec. You might kill your machine if you are using a non professional blender.

The best part is, you can make other butters too! Cashew Butter is also amazing!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Roll-Ups

Chicken Cordon Bleu Roll-Ups Recipe on SixSistersStuff


I have found that if I can roll dinner up in a crescent form, my kids will eat it. However, that means that my husband and I have to eat it too, so it’s difficult to find something that will please both the picky-eater kids and the advanced-palate parents (ha ha! Okay, so we really don’t have an advanced palate. I still really love macaroni and cheese from a box). Anyway, these roll-ups were so easy to make and everyone in the family loved them. My kids dipped them in ketchup (they love ketchup with their ketchup) and my husband and I dipped them in honey mustard sauce.

This dinner can be thrown together in a matter of minutes and is perfect for kids and adults alike!
Ingredients
  • 2 (8 oz each) packages refrigerated crescent rolls (I used Pillsbury brand)
  • 16 slices Swiss cheese (mine were 2×1″ in size)
  • 16 slices deli ham, thinly sliced
  • 1½ cups cooked chicken, shredded or cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ cup Italian bread crumbs

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Unroll crescent roll dough. On each roll, place a piece of swiss cheese, piece of ham, and a tablespoon or two of cooked chicken. Roll the roll around the cheese and meat and place on a large cookie sheet (or other baking pan – mine was a 15x10x1″ cookie sheet).
  3. Once you have rolled up all the roll-ups, use a pastry brush to brush the tops of the rolls with the beaten egg (you could also use melted butter if you prefer). Sprinkle the tops of the rolls with the bread crumbs.
  4. Place cookie sheet in the oven and cook for 13-16 minutes, or until the rolls are golden and full cooked.

Equipment needed for this recipe:
Pastry Brush
Cookie Sheet

Frosted Pumpkin Sugar Cookie Bars Recipe

Pumpkin Sugar Cookie Bars Recipe SixSistersStuff


One of my favorite recipes is our Sugar Cookie Bars – I am confident that I could polish off a pan of these by myself.

With it being pumpkin season, I have been dreaming about a pumpkin bar that has the denseness and texture of a sugar cookie bar. Top it with a cream cheese frosting and you pretty much have heaven in a bar form. :)

These bars make a ton, which makes them perfect for any party or get-together. I promise that you will be grateful that this recipe makes a lot because they are delicious!

Frosted Pumpkin Sugar Cookie Bars Recipe

A chewy, dense sugar cookie bar with the delicious flavor of pumpkin. Topped with cream cheese frosting, it will quickly become a favorite with your family and friends.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 5-6 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Frosting:
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each egg. Mix in vanilla and pumpkin.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together flour (start with 5 cups and add more if you feel that your dough is too runny), salt, baking soda pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon. Add to wet mixture and mix just until combined. Spread on a greased, rimmed baking sheet (I used a 15x10x1″ cookie sheet). The dough will be just like cookie dough- heavy and sticky- so it’s best to spray your hands with a little nonstick spray and use them to help mold the dough into the pan.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes, or until bars are a light golden brown (or a toothpick comes out clean when stuck in the middle). Cool completely before frosting.
  4. For frosting, cream butter and cream cheese together, then add vanilla, milk and powdered sugar. If you want the frosting to be thicker, add more powdered sugar. If you want it to be thinner, add more milk. Spread frosting on top of cooled bars.
