I am only rating the filling, cuz I cannot have nuts, but the filling was incredible! I used two already made graham cracker crusts, both of which were 3/4 full, and it was such a divine treat for my family...my two year old asked for seconds! LOL I drizzled Chocolate Fudge Sundae sauce (recipe #45027)over the top, and it was soo good! Thanks!
This was fantastic! The crust really gave this pie that extra kick...the contrast of the pecans in the crust was really delicious. The filling had just the right peanut butter flavor, although it was a little bit rich...can't eat too big of a slice! But overall, this was a real winner! Thanks for the recipe.
OOOOOH! This is one rich pie! I ran out of graham cracker crumbs and had to use 1/2 cup oreo cookie crumbs to make up the difference but it was still great. Just remember to keep it chilled right until serving time as it tends to not stay as firm.I garnished this with a dap of whipped cream and a scoop of creamy peanut butter. Thanks for posting!
