Peanut Butter Custard Pie

This is not an overly sweet pie. It is custardy and the crust is a cookie crust. We use to have a resturant near my home that use to have the best peanut butter custard pie. They used a regular pie crust but I like the added peanut butter and that little bit of sweetness in the crust. The custard is nice and thick without using a cheese product. My aunt always calls it a man's pie because it is not overly sweet.
I just like the rich peanut butter custard and the sweetness from the crust.
