From the Kitchen: Almond Butter

Hello again! We're back in the kitchen; this time we'll be making a new favorite of mine... almond butter!    
I'd seen it several times in the blog world, and I finally made it myself! Ohh is it delicious! {The whole family agrees with me too :) } So without further ado, Almond Butter!
Pour at least 2 cups of almonds into the food processor
 Blend and scrap down, blend and scrape down...
 Eventually the oils in the nuts will release which results in clumping of the soon to be butter. Yay!
 Add some honey and cinnamon for more delicious flavor
 Look how smooth the almonds finally became!
Blend it up again with the honey and cinnamon
 Pour into a container, add a homemade label (top picture) and enjoy your delicious creation
Simply Delightful... and we've been making almond butter ever since!

Almond Butter Recipe
-Food Processor
-At least 2 cups of almonds (the more the better... don't do less than 2 cups)
-Honey to taste
-Cinnamon to taste 
-Patience

It took about 15-25 minutes with all the scraping and processing.

*Once you put the almonds in a blend them (on high), it will eventually get to a point where it is not blending anything anymore. At this point turn off the processor and scrape down the sides. You may need to do this several times. Eventually the almonds will clump and form a ball while the processor is running. Continue to let the processor run and blend the almonds until smooth. Remember to have patience...I promise it is worth it! When the almond butter has reached your desired consistency, add in honey and cinnamon. I just eyeballed it and then tasted it to make sure :). Please don't do this in your blender or it might not be functioning anymore! 

Enjoy!

I'm a little skeptical because I love exact measurements, but it looks too yummy not to at least attempt!
