    miss gracie's Note:

    This wonderful recipe comes from the December 2002 issue of Bon Appetit. It is very simple to make and looks and tastes fabulous! The peanut butter filling is very light and creamy and is nicely complemented by the chocolate crust. Tart is best made several hours or one day before it is served to allow the crust to soften a bit.

      Excellent. Have made several times. Perfect as is! Wafer cookies are found in a narrow yellow box (I believe Nabisco brand). They are usually in the ice cream cone section, oddly enough! If you love chocolate and peanut butter, you will LOVE this!
