      It may have been snipped from Ladies' Home Journal, but this recipe is the same one I made last night: I got it from Rose Levy Berenbaum's Pie Bible. It's very simple to make, and is an adult's ode to Reeses' Peanut Butter Cups. She also adds that it freezes well, the ganache still retaining its shine. A personal note.... when making the crust, it puffs up horribly about half way through the bake time. Don't worry... when it's finished, it will slump itself back down into the proper form.

      I agree, this is definitely Rose Levy Berenbaum's. It is excellent! Some advance planning is involved for the dough. I didn't read ahead and ended up freezing it both times for the "chilling" part. And that crust is sooo delicious, like a giant peanut butter cookie!
