To remove peanut butter easily from your measuring cup, use the same cup to measure your vegetable oil first and the peanut butter will slide out easily. If you are not using oil in your recipe, spray the measuring cup with baking spray before filling it with peanut butter.
If you have a kitchen scale (preferably a baking scale) place a piece of waxed paper on the scale and weigh it. 1 cup equals 8 ounces. It is easy to slide off of the waxed paper into your batter.
To store peanut butter, keep it in the refrigerator to save it's freshness (or the oils from the peanuts can become rancid which is an off-flavor due to the spoilage of the oil).
Peanut butter can be used to remove gum from hair and other surfaces if it is worked into the gum, etc.
Peanut butter is a great addition to frosting – adding flavor, creaminess and nutrition. If crunchy is used, it will add interest and texture to the frosting. It can also be used in cupcakes. Slice the cupcake in half and spread peanut butter on it and then put the 2 halves together again. Helps keep it moist and makes a tasty cupcake with added nutrition.
Put peanut butter between snack crackers like Townhouse and dip in dipping chocolate or white coating chocolate for a quick cookie treat. Then sprinkle with honey toasted wheat germ for a crunchy topping.
