This pie is awesome! Like some of the other reviewers, I made this in a 13x9 pan and added a layer of chocolate pudding (mixed with a little bit of whipped cream) above the peanut butter. It wasn't as rich as some peanut butter desserts so we were actually able to eat a full serving of it.
Big WOW!! This pie tastes so good, I had to make myself share it with the rest of my family. I used the Nutter Butters for the crust which really intensified the peanut butter flavor. The filling was so rich and creamy and I did drizzle chocolate syrup on top. Looked spectacular. I should have just spread the stuff right on my thighs ;)
I worked in a restaurant outside of Washington DC for many years and we had a peanut butter pie that had, basically, the same filling but we put in a handmake graham cracker crust. Best seller! But WOW is the taste elevated with a Nutter Butter Cookie Crust!! It's great to make ahead, before you start cooking dinner remove pie from freezer or just a slice or two and let sit on kitchen counter. When ready to eat, I drizzle with chocolate syrup over the slice and the plate, chopped salted peanuts and whipped cream. I guarantee your last bite is going to be trying to scrape the chocolate off the plate with every last crumb!
