Anyone make nut butter at home? Pre-soak - yes or no?

Looking to throw some nuts (almonds, cashews, pist, tho separately) into a food processor and make some nut butter. I have seen some sites suggest a pre-soak - i this necessary?

Also, how long to roast? I have seen 12-14 hrs at 170.... this seems really long.

Thanks in advance.

We've made peanut butter (specifically honey roasted peanut butter, so so good) and almond butter using leftover salted almonds. We use blanched almonds, I don't have the time or patience to peel my own.

For me, the salted almonds are better peeled, but I have had almond butter from unpeeled almonds and that was good as well.

Both nuts were toasted (350 oven for 10 to 14 minutes. I judge nut done-ness by smell). Neither was soaked. I have seen people who add some of the matching nut oil at the end for extra smoothness.
