Bourbon Pecan Peanut ButterMADE BY REGINALD'S HOMEMADE IN ROCKVILLE, VIRGINIA
Packed with classic Southern ingredients, this peanut butter is so tasty right off a spoon that it might not always make its way into a sandwich. –Tina Ujlaki, Executive Food Editor, Food & Wine Magazine
If magic exists, it must be in the form of bourbon and pecans, because this nut butter is making all our wishes come true. (Ta da!) There's just a hint of crunch from bits of dry roasted pecan, mellowed out by a splash of bourbon and a little vanilla – it's practically pecan pie in a jar.
Background: Andrew Broocker was tired of peanut butter that tasted more like sugar and salt than peanuts. So he started making his own, subtracting everything extra until he got to the purest, peanut-y taste. Once he'd found the flavor he loved, he got creative and started adding in all kinds of tasty additions. His peanut butters are a unanimous YES around here.

If you're feeling ambitious, slather this magical stuff on cinnamon roll dough instead of the typical brown sugar-butter mix for a nutty baked treat.
