Get out a double boiler, add the cream, milk, and water. Mix well, add the sugar, cornstarch, and salt, mix well. Cook over boiling water for 15-17minutes until thickened. Get out a bowl, add the egg yolks, beat, add a small amount of the milk mixture and temper with the egg yolks. Add the egg mixture to the double boiler, mix well. Cook for another 2-3minutes, remove from the heat. Add the butter and peanut butter, stir until smooth and the butter has melted. Add the vanilla, mix well and taste.
