Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Ok, now put your hands up and sing with me. One, two, three and…sing!

"Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby

Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around

And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby

When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still

I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'

You know that I have from the start

So build me up (build me up) Buttercup, don't break my heart.”

Just so you know, ladies and gentlemen, I am the only one singing. That means I am the background singer too. What a great life!

Anyway, I'm not going to discuss to you the deep, life-changing meaning of this song, if there is anything life-changing. But why am I singing this one? It is because our recipe for today is not only mouth-watering; it is called Peanut Butter Cup Pie. Now you understand why I acted like crazy. You will too once you mention its name. But I don't want to hear your voice…for now. Maybe later. Tomorrow. Next year. Let peanut butter introduce itself first.

According to Wikipedia, peanut butter is a “food paste made primarily from ground dry roasted peanut(actually a legume and not a nut) and is popular in North America, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Australia and parts of Asia, particularly the Philippines and Indonesia.” No doubt I can see it everywhere in the Philippines. Well, peanut butter is used as sandwich spread. It is said that Aztecs used to ground peanuts into paste. This can be the origin of peanut butter. In 1884, Marcellus Gilmore Edson, a Canadian chemist, is the first to patent peanut butter. According to his patent application, his peanut butter has a "a consistency like that of butter, lard, or ointment.” It is first sold for six cents per pound.

Peanut butter is a good source of protein. Two tablespoons of peanut butter contains 7 grams of protein. It is also good for the heart. “Eating a high quality peanut butter like this can actually improve your heart health, especially when compared to those who seldom or never eat nuts,” says Radhika (Health Ambition website). And most of all, peanut butter is good for those who are trying to drop some pounds. Because it is rich in protein and fibre, eating peanut butter will make you feel full, thus, preventing you from overeating.

Oh, well. I am not going to mention more about this Peanut Butter Cup Pie. There, I said it again. You know what happens… Oh God, there it goes now. One, two, three… SING!
