craig's birthday was last week.
on easter he asked for a peanut butter pie....ON easter day.
i was busy...making coconut cream pie for my sugar-deprived self.
but i remembered his request and made it for his birthday.
if you like peanut butter....you HAVE to make this.
everyone who tries it says something like "OHHHHH! YUUUUMMMM!" after their first bite.
first i made PW's pie crust.
(i am wearing a quilted apron...made of all polyester pieces...from the thrift shop....i love it.)
roll it out.
this is a labor of love....it's messy.
make it look pretty.
then bake it for 10 - 15 minutes.
mix peanut butter and powdered sugar together with a fork...
until it looks like this....
then put 3/4 of it at the bottom of your cooled pie crust.
my pie crust baking skills are very raw.
it hasn't worked quite right yet...doesn't keep it's shape.
but i will just keep practicing.
it tastes fabulous though...and i don't even like pie crust!
don't laugh at my pie crust...i am trying here people!!
it's not pillsbury and THAT is the important part of this story.
whisk the pudding mix with milk and pour on top of the peanut butter crumbles.
refrigerate it for a few minutes for it to set.
(or you could make homemade whipped cream...if you are awesome)
sprinkle the remaining peanut butter crumbles on the whipped cream.
refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
this is so good.
i think it may be a midwest recipe.
it seems like it is....but maybe i am way off.
it makes me think of church potlucks or family renuions.
in a good way.
RECIPE IN THE SIDEBAR.
(and btw...craig looooved it...no surprise)
