Summer is my favorite time of year to eat pie. Especially a cool and creamy refrigerated pie. And if it has peanut butter and chocolate– I’m in heaven. This wondrous pie will make you feel like a kid again with layer after layer of creaminess. You’ll be licking every last trace off of your spoon.
It all starts with a piecrust made from Nutter Butter cookies. Then comes a layer of fudge sauce. The kind you use on ice cream. Next is a layer of sliced banana, because they will maybe make you feel a little less guilty about eating such a sinful pie. Ok, maybe not.
