A spoonful of peanut butter makes everything better.

If you can be content with a spoon and a jar of peanut butter, this month is dedicated to you. Peanut butter is one of those simple treats that will always bring a smile to my face. Whether it's in the form of a peanut butter sandwich, a dip for my apples or just by itself, it always makes me happy.

In honor of this entire month being dedicated to those who love peanut butter, I have ranked my top five recipes using peanut butter as a prominent ingredient.

5. Peanut Butter Pie

The base of this creamy and delicious pie is peanut butter, cream cheese, sugar and cream. How much better can it get? The combination of thick peanut butter with smooth cream cheese, sugar and heavy cream is perfection. Put it in a chocolate graham cracker crust and you have the ultimate creamy pie.

4. Peanut Butter & Jelly Cupcakes

Martha Stewart's recipe for peanut butter & jelly cupcakes is one of my favorite cupcakes. The fluffy peanut butter cake is topped with a creamy peanut butter cream cheese frosting and jelly. I like to insert the jelly into the cupcakes after they bake so each bite is like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I could just eat the peanut butter frosting by itself. If you love PB&J sandwiches, you'll love these PB&J cupcakes. Give fellow EOW writer Joanna O'Leary's own PB&J cupcakes recipe a whirl, too, if you have a cupcake corer at home.
