Peanut Butter Soup
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat and sauté the onion until soft. Whisk in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until smooth. Stir in the peanut butter and add the broth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, over low heat until thickened and smooth. Add the cream. Just before serving, stir in the Madeira.
