This melt-in-your-mouth nut butter is the perfect jumping-off point for instant desserts. Spread over warm bread or inside cr?pes with sliced bananas—or enjoy by the spoonful! For a velvety texture, process the nuts until they're creamy and completely smooth—the time it takes to get there will depend on the power of your food processor.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: If you can't find skinned roasted hazelnuts, buy raw hazelnuts and roast them in a 350?F (180?C) oven until the skins crack, 8?to 10?minutes. Transfer them to a tea towel and rub off as much of the skins as possible.
