No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

By Paula Todora ptodora


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!
