It’s only 10:00 a.m. and I am craving something chocolate and peanut buttery (no, I am not pregnant). I came across this recipe for Dead Man’s Peanut Butter pie which will certainly satisfy my craving.
Mother Humble’s Dead Man’s Peanut Butter Pie:
1 pie crust or gram cracker crust in a 10” pie pan or 4 similarly prepared 6” tarts
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 eight ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup heavy cream
In a bowl whip the cream with the granulated sugar and set aside. In your mixer beat the remaining ingredients until well blended. Reduce speed and slowly beat in the whip cream scraping down the sides of the bowl until just blended. Pour into your prepared pie crust and even out the top.
Prepare the glaze by placing the chocolate chips into a heat safe bowl and set aside. Bring the heavy cream to a simmer over medium heat and then pour over the chips and let stand for a minute then mix until smooth.
Smooth the glaze over the peanut butter pie and chill for several hours before serving. The dead men cut from extra pie crust are of course optional.
