Peanut Butter Pie


When we were in Illinois my mom gave me this pie plate. Isn't it beautiful? I love it and knew I couldn't wait to use it :-) So I made a Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie for a New Years Eve Party :-) I've been in a bit of a cooking funk lately, but the time in Illinois seemed to revive it. Plus I got several new cookbooks :-) I hope that you all are staying safe and warm if you are in the cold.  ENJOY!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Graham Cracker Crust

2 Packs of Graham Crackers Crushed
1/2 Stick of Butter melted

Put your crushed graham crackers in a bowl, and put in the butter. Mix till its all wet. Press it into your pie plate and bake for 10 minutes. 

Take it out and let it cool. 

Chocolate:
1 Package of dark chocolate melted

Put about a 1 C. of it on the bottom on top of the crust.
Save the rest for the top of the pie.

Take the rest of your melted chocolate and put it in a small baggy. Cut the corner and drizzle all over the pie. Let it chill and sit in the fridge for awhile.
