Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pie

My Stonewall Kitchen Peanut Butter & Chocolate Pie!

Most of you know that I make a lot of pies, and I spend a lot of time in Maine at our cottage.  One of my favorite stops is Stonewall Kitchen in York.  On a recent trip, I came across one of their recipe cards for Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pie . . . well, I stopped dead in my tracks!  I knew I had to make this!  I knew it would be a hit!  One of the things I admire most about stopping at Stonewall Kitchen is you can sample just about every product in the store - and when I sampled the Chocolate Peanut Butter Sauce I was sold!  This pie would be a winner!

I immediately thought I'd make this pie for a recent family get together.  When my 4 of my 5 nieces heard I was bringing this pie they ALL turned up their noses . . . HOWEVER . . . when they tried a slice they said it was amazing!  In fact, one of them brought back 2 slices back to college with her! 

I will tell you that this pie is extremely rich, and a nine inch pie will usually feed 6 to 8 people, however this pie will feed 12 - easily.  

Bake, eat and enjoy!


      1 1/2 cups chocolate graham cracker crumbs
      6 Tablespoons butter, melted
      1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
      1 cup Stonewall Kitchen Creamy Peanut Butter, room temperature
      1 cup confectioner’s sugar, sifted
      8 ounces Mascarpone cheese, room temperature
      1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
      1-cup heavy cream, whipped to stiff peaks
      1/4 cup mini chocolate morsels
      1/4 cup pecans, chopped and toasted
      1/4 cup English toffee bits
      Stonewall Kitchen Chocolate Peanut Butter Sauce, heat until pourable

1.      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.     Crush chocolate graham crackers in a food processor fitted with a metal blade or by placing the crackers in a zip-lock bag and crushing them with a rolling pin.
3.      Add melted butter and 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar to the crumbs and mix. Place crumbs in a 9 inch pie pan, pressing to line bottom and sides of the pan. Bake crust 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
4.     In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment combine the Creamy Peanut Butter, 1 cup confectioners' sugar, Mascarpone cheese, and vanilla extract. Mix on medium speed until combined making sure to not over mix. Gently fold in whipped cream and chocolate morsels. Spread the filling evenly in the baked crumb crust.
5.      Sprinkle the pecans and English toffee bits over the top of the pie. Generously drizzle Stonewall Kitchen Chocolate Peanut Butter Sauce over the top of the pie. Chill pie until ready to serve.
