Southern Peanut Butter Cream Pie

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

This is a very rich pie with a peanut butter pudding filling and a meringue topping. Sometimes I use whipped cream instead of the meringue. This pie is as southern as it gets.

This pie is very rich and has avery strong peanut butter taste. Almost like eating fluffy peanut butter out f the jar. Not exactly what I was hoping for.

Absolutely wonderful! The filling was enough to fill the pie shell and had a generous amount of meringue. Perfect! This goes into my tried and approved and onto my meal calendar as a repeating entry. I have been looking for this recipe for a very long time. Thank you for submitting this one!

Pie was good! It did'nt set up as well as I had hoped. The taste was yummy, but a bit too creamy without a distinct peanut butter taste and texture. I'll try again. Thanks for sharing with us.
