When I was in college, I used to order Peanut Butter Pie from Creme de la Creme in Rochester, NY. Mmmmm....yummy. Years later (when I finally started learning to cook!), I saw this recipe in my mother's Johnson County Library Gets Cooking! (Johnson County, Kansas, that is) and I thought, "this needs the chocolate topping from those chocolate mint brownies a couple pages back." Oh yeah! Jordan is my step-son. He gobbled this pie up! (Well, he had help.) For the crust, mix 1 1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs with 4 Tablespoons melted butter and press into a 9-inch pie plate.
