Paula's Story

As a child I would only eat peanut butter & grape jelly sandwiches for lunch. This recipe was one that my mother, Earline, made for me on my birthday when I was about 8. Of course, it contained my favorite ingredient-PEANUT BUTTER! She passed away in 1985, but her peanut butter pie recipe lives on-now it's one of my husband's favorite pies!

8 oz
cream cheese, room temperature
1 c
creamy peanut butter
1/2 c
whole or 2% milk
1 c
powdered sugar
1/2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 c
