Peanut Butter Pie VIII


This is an excellent peanut butter pie recipe. My grandmother requested it many years ago from a restaurant that served it. Everyone who has had this pie loves it.

1 to 9 - inch pie


  • 1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • ½ cup peanut butter

  • 2 cups milk

  • cup white sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 3 eggs, separated

  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 6 tablespoons white sugar


  1. Mix confectioners' sugar and peanut butter until mixture has a crumbly texture. Sprinkle half over the bottom of the shell.

  2. In the top of a double boiler, combine milk, 2/3 cup sugar, salt, vanilla, cornstarch, and egg yolks. Cook over medium-low heat until thick. Pour filling into crust.

  3. Beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar, and continue beating. Gradually add 6 tablespoons sugar, and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread over the top of the pie. Sprinkle with remaining peanut butter mixture.

  4. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
