My husband and I came up with this recipe the other night since we were having a pumpkin carving party (making the pie for guests) and we also had our Halloween candy out. The pie was a big success. Our daughter's name is Teresa and we nickname her Resa (hence the name of the recipe) .

  • Whisk sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger, and cloves together in a small bowl. Beat eggs together in a large bowl; stir in pumpkin and sugar mixture until just combined. Slowly pour evaporated milk into pumpkin mixture and stir until combined.

  • Arrange peanut butter cups, up-side down, into the graham cracker crust. Pour pumpkin mixture over peanut butter cups in pie crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking until a knife inserted in the center of the pie comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack, about 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate.

This was very good! I was snowed in and didn't have the peanut butter cups but did have a chocolate graham cracker crust and some peanut butter which worked well. I look forward to making this again with the peanut butter cups. Read More
