Peanut Butter Pie With Meringue Topping

Peanut Butter Pie With Meringue Topping created by thejonesgal

I know there are many Peanut Butter Pie recipes already posted here; I looked over many of them! This one is a bit different in that it has a meringue topping and a filling that is made from scratch. It does take some time, but I think you'll be pleased with the results and so will your family and guests...Anytime I've made it, it's been a delicious hit! (Cook time is on the generous side and includes time to make homemade crust; cook time includes time to make filling;both are estimates)

  • Add butter and vanilla; pour into prepared pie shell.
  • Beat egg whites until soft peaks form a meringue.
  • Spread on filling, sealing sides by crust.
  • Sprinkle with remainder of peanut butter crumbs.
  • Brown slightly under broiler-- WATCH!
  • to avoid crumbs burning.

  • NOTE: If you're in a rush and need a shortcut, you could substitute vanilla or French Vanilla pudding mix for the filling made from scratch-- either the kind you cook or instant should be okay-- Prepare according to package directions.

    exceptional peanut butter pie. It's one my daughter and I have searched for years to have as part of our stach of pie recipes that we often crave and can't get enough of, often enough! Years ago our babysitter use to make this peanut butter pie recipe and it just brings back such good memories!!

    I made this into a wonderful vanilla pudding with a bottom and top of peanut butter crumbles that melt into sweet smoothness in your mouth. We're watching our fat intake so we skipped the pie crust. Just add the layers in a pie plate as though there was a crust or use dessert cups. Be sure to cool the pudding (if made from scratch) before adding it to avoid melting the powdered sugar and turning the peanut butter layers soggy.
