Peanut Butter Pie

Happy National Pie Day!

I married into a family that loves PIE! They always had pie parties to celebrate Clayton’s Dad and Grandma’s birthdays and we continue this tradition for his Grandma. I am not a fan of making a pie crust, mostly because it scares me,so I like to stick with graham cracker crust pies or refrigerated pie dough! Soon I will tackle the pie crust fear but not today!

I love peanut butter and chocolate anything so it’s only fitting that I love Peanut Butter Pie! I like to make mine with a standard graham cracker crust because I add the chocolate to the top! It’s a good blend of peanut butter, chocolate and graham cracker! I know this pie doesn’t picture the best but I tried! I’ll get a better picture next time I make this pie.

The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for the pie and chocolate to set. And this pie is very rich so enjoy it with a glass of milk.
