I think I may have one around here somewhere. Just checked my favorite 
Virginia cookbook, "Virginia Hospitality" from the Women's League of 
Hampton Roads, VA.  I've not tried this particular recipe, but know that 
every recipe I've made from this book is excellent...so.....

Cream of Peanut Soup

2 ribs celery,chopped
1/4 cup butter
1 small onion, chopped
2 T flour
2 C. chicken broth
1 C. milk
1 C. light cream
1 C peanut butter
salt and pepper

Brown celery and onions in butter.  Add flour and chicken broth, and 
bring to a boil.  Add milk and cream.  Strain.  Add peanut butter and 
simmer for 5 minutes.  Season to taste.  Yields 6 servings or 8 cups.
