State Fair Winner Peanut Butter Cream Pie

Total Time

Originally titled Simon's PB Pie isn't heavy and has a subtle PB flavor. My 81 year old dad won 1st Place with this recipe in the Cream Pie division/State Fair of Texas, approx/1976. Sharing his sense of humor, I asked how he wanted to be recognized: He replied, "Master Chef Guillome Henri Gaston Siber. but I do respond to either "My Dad," or Bill Sybert." Recipe shared by Mae Murrell of Houston, Texas, many years ago.

This is fabulous!! So easy & what a blast of peanut butter flavour! As I don't like meringue, I just topped with Cool Whip & then sprinkled with the pb mixture. I've never heard of a peanut butter cream pie but so glad I found this recipe as it was a BIG hit at our Easter dinner!

We made this last night and it was amazing. After reading that it was a State Fair of Texas winner I had to give it a try. The peanut butter and sugar mixture puts this pie over the top. 5 stars all the way!

I made this yesterday and it was absolutely delicious. Is a little time consuming to make, but well worth the effort. Only change I would make is to decrease the sugar in the custard filling to 1/2 cup. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing. This is the first time I have ever written a review, but thought it worthwhile for such a delcious pie. juba777
