In honor of “National Peanut Butter” day, I decided to play around with an old family favorite… The peanut butter pie!
I am really starting to wish that I hadn’t found the list of National Food Day’s, however this one inspired me 🙂
I love peanut butter pie, however I find that after a few bites I’m a little overwhelmed with peanut butter. So I decided to make a pie that was more “laced” with peanut butter, than solely BASED upon it. After combing through my favorite pie components, I mixed a little of this recipe with a little of that one and WALLA!
The layer of peanut butter crumbles saddle up alongside the vanilla custard, and both deserve awards for their role of supporting ingredients in my book. I like things to play nicely together (including my children) and this was no exception. I want LAYERS of flavor, not just one that jumps out and takes your palette prisoner.
Soooo let’s get this pie started!
