Wow! This is amazing!! My husband is a huge peanut butter fan and he can't stop talking about how good this pie is! The only change I made was I used Morgan's dark rum and not Captain Morgan Spiced rum. Yummy! This is a new favorite and will be made often. We did not find it too sweet to eat a whole piece!
