Being brought up in a British household, I was never a peanut butter fan. It just wasn’t something we grew up with. So years ago, when my late husband’s mom offered me some peanut butter pie, I said, politely, I’ll have “just a sliver”. Well, over that weekend visit, I “sliver-ed” through an entire pie myself! So much for not liking peanut butter!
I never got her recipe, but I did run across this one in my mom’s recipe file. Yum!! Rich and decadent on its own, I took it up a notch by topping it with a bittersweet chocolate ganache and whipped cream. I’ve included the instructions for a homemade crust, but you can (as I did) use a pre-made chocolate crust.
