1/3 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
cornstarch
1/4 tsp
salt
1 1/2 c
milk
1/2 c
half-and-half cream
1/2 c
creamy peanut butter (use a good brand)

8-9 inch pastry pie shell, baked or use a store bought chocolate or graham cracker cookie crust
whipped topping
chocolate sprinkles, chopped nuts, or a dusting of cocoa for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Using a whisk, gradually stir in milk and cream. Whisk well to avoid lumps in pudding. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for 4-5 minutes after boiling begins. Do not allow pudding to burn. You must stir constantly.
