Blender, Bowl, Food Processor, Kitchen Knife, Spoon

Step 1:

Put first four ingredients into bowl of food processor in order given: mash as many basil leaves in as you can, just as long as you leave a few inches of space at the top of the bowl, then add garlic, slice up the butter on top, and dump the cheese on top of that.

Step 2:

Pulse and gradually add olive oil until mixture is the consistency of thick paste. (Taste at this point and see if it needs more of anything.)

Step 3:

Add nuts and continue to blend.

Once done, spoon into jars and keep in fridge until ready to enjoy.
