I made this for my grandmother's 84th birthday because she use to love Tippin's peanut butter pie. Their pie had a custard like filling and no chocolate in it. So when I found this recipe I thought this is the one. And it was close with some tweaking to it. I followed the directions exactly how it was written. I stirred the milk egg flour and sugar mixture for 45 minutes and it never thickened to more than a little thicker than pancake batter. I poured it into the pie shell and it never set. After 2 hours it was still less than pudding like consistency. At that point I was running short on time and thought it can't hurt if I bake it. Which I did at 350 for 1 hour I covered the crust with foil and after an hour it was perfect. It had the consistency of a pumpkin pie. Everyone thought it was great and ate it all my grandmother didn't even get a slice. So I will be making anothr one today. Read More

I thought this was pretty good. We like a strong peanut butter taste and this didn't have it but it wasn't bad either. It took awhile for the mixture to thicken and the directions should be more specific on that. There were a few times I didn't think it was going to get thick and almost gave up. Read More

Wow! This pie was really good. I added a little extra flour and cooked the filling a little bit longer and it turned out perfect; not runny at all! Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

Good creamy pie....the only thing I would do is add another 1/4 cup of sugar. Not quite the sweetness levell needed...the pie was very peanut buttery but needed a bit more sugar. I don't like those that eat sweets then complain it's too sweet. It needs to TASTE right. Overall good recipe that needs a minor adjustment. Read More
