Southern Peanut Butter Pie

Rated as 3.94 out of 5 Stars

"Yes, it is gloriously Southern -- as I am, and a family favorite! It's made with dark corn syrup, peanut butter and whole peanuts and looks like pumpkin pie, but don't be fooled! This pie is simple and delicious for those who like peanut butter. It is a great recipe to serve guests as it is an unexpected taste treat! Serve with whipped topping or ice cream if desired."

Tasty but did not set. I may have underbaked, but the crust was brown, and filling was quite liquid (syrupy). After sitting overnight it would come out in a nice slice without leaking, but the...

Wow, this was easy and good. I used light corn syrup + a little molasses instead of the dark syrup. I think the whole peanuts are fine, I used a serrated knife and sawed through them, and the ...

This wasn't what I was expecting. It reminded me more of a pecan pie only this had peanuts. It is very good with some whipped cream but it is also very sweet.
