Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut butter pie is my all time favorite pie.

My Aunt J made it for our family at some point and I have not let it go since. We have made a few variations to it over the years…perfecting it to the wonderful and heavenly goodness that it is today.

I make this pie even when I know that I am the only one who is going to eat it (C.J. is not the biggest peanut butter fan).

In fact, for our Thanksgiving this past year, I made him a pumpkin pie and I made myself a peanut butter pie.

Enjoy…it is fabulous.
