A little too sweet, but very delicious. I did cover the crust with foil until the last 15 mins of baking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Crush the peanuts with rolling pin or mallet.
  3. Lightly beat the eggs; whisk in the sugar and flour until well combined.
  4. Add corn syrup and peanuts, and then add butter.
  5. Pour the filling into the prepared crust.
  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the pie is a rich golden brown, set around the edges, but still a little loose in the center. (If the crust gets too dark, tent the edges with a pie shield or foil during the last part of baking.).
  7. Cool to room temperature.
  8. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
