ALLOWING IT TO COOL FOR ATLEAST 1/2 HOUR... (YOU CAN REFRIGERATE IT IF YOU'D LIKE) ...MEANWHILE
3
IN ANOTHER SAUCEPAN, COMBINE MILK AND HALF & HALF, SUGAR, CREAM CHEESE, BUTTER, VANILLA AND SALT....BRING TO A BOIL. STIR OCCASSIONALLY.
4
IN ANOTHER MEDIUM SIZE BOWL, WHISK CORNSTARCH AND WATER TOGETHER -UNTIL SMOOTH THEN WHISK IN THE 4 EGG YOLKS.
5
Whisk egg/water mixture into boiling milk mixture and stir continuously until thickened......Remove from the heat and STIR in the peanut butter.
6
Allow the filling to rest until cooled. About 15 minutes
7
Once the filling is cooled...fold in the 2 oz. of the whipped topping ..atleast until the white of the topping is not apparent.
8
Pour into the pie pan and drip the left over tablespoons of genache on top of the pie and run a butter knife slightly thru the top to make a swirl like design....sprinkle with a few roasted peanuts atop (optional)

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

PLEASE NOTE: YOU WLL HAVE A LITTLE EXTRA GENACHE AND PIE FILLING-JUST FREEZE FOR SMALLER PIE OR TO FILL CUPCAKE TIN.
