The first thing I ever cooked was this pie. It's found many lovers over the many years I have made it. I only have one word it is the BEST now that I have made it Y2K compliant.

Easy simple recipe but too sweet for my tastes. I did make it without milk however (I didn't realize I was out of milk when I went to the grocery store for all of the other ingredients):-) Read More

Yum! I added a 1/4 c. less milk for firmer pie and added a topping of grated chocolate curls mixed with blanched, sliced almonds for a prettier presentation. Everyone at a potluck loved it! Read More

I have another peanut butter pie recipe but couldn't find it when I was making my grocery list so I used this one. It is MUCH better lighter and creamier than the one I was used to! I think the difference is whipping the cream cheese before adding the powdered sugar. In any case I used a granola crust and layered the bottom with melted chocolate chips before pouring in the filling. Everyone wanted seconds! Read More

this is really a good recipe. We liked it the first time.the second time I was looking for a bit of a change. so I used a pakage of instant chocolate pudding omitted one cup of the milk on the box instructions and mixed half of the prepared pudding into the pie filling. I reserved some of the whipped topping and used the other half the pudding in it whipped it with the mixer til it was fluffy and spread that on top of the pie. DELICIOUS!! Read More
