Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Amy Herald


This recipe comes from the book 'America's Best Pies' by Linda Hoskins its called Peanut Butter Proposal Pie in the cook book. Its very rich and delicious! I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13 glass casserole. If you like chocolate and peanut butter you'll love this pie!
