|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!
