This peanut butter pie is the real deal. No pudding or freezing. Any true Southerner knows a real peanut butter pie when they taste it and this is it. This recipe was passed on to me by a chef at a famous inn here in Virginia that served up some of the best pies in the state.

I made this pie for international Pi Day and the end result was pretty good! I followed the recipe pretty closely but had to make a few changes to the custard element of the recipe as it was not nearly thick enough. After the custard was complete I realized it was too thin so I added about 2 Tbsp of custard powder to 1/4 milk and added that to the hot custard and continued cooking until it was the desired consistency. Although the recipe doesn't state I allowed my custard to cool to room temperature before pouring over the peanut butter mixture. From there I followed the recipe exactly and the end result was delicious! Read More
