    The instructions are great and it is easy to make. Peanut butter filling had just the right amount of sweetness. However the chocolate's flavor and texture could be improved - IMO the cornstarch gives the chocolate a texture that doesn't marry well with the rest of the pie.

    I really loved this pie! I made it for Thanksgiving and I got so many compliments on it. Be warned: when you eat this pie, make sure you have a huge glass of milk with it!

    We liked this pie. It was like eating a peanut butter cup. Pretty rich tasting even without the garnishes. Thanks Rita L. Bullwinkle.

    We did like this pie and it really is rather guilt free, no cream or butter there. Chocolate and peanut butter is a marriage made in heaven, but maybe that absence of sinful fats made this pie just a little heavy and gluey textured. All that chocolate did not help to make it mouth melting and sweet enough.

    This pie deserves more than 5 stars!!! Easy to make, and ohhhhh so darned rich and delicious. The peanut butter is a bit thick, but that is just how I like it. Thank You Rita for a really great pie recipe.
