Calling all bacon lovers! This is a tasty treat that is sure to please the whole crowd. I found this recipe and made this last weekend for the family and they devoured it! It is a little time consuming because the pie has to be frozen after it is prepared, but it was definitely worth the wait.
1Preheat oven to 400. Coat bacon with brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. Place on a cookie sheet covered with foil and cook for 12 minutes on each side or until done. Remove and place on wax paper.
2Heat 1/2 cup sugar and milk in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and whisk in peanut butter and vanilla until combined well, then transfer to a bowl and cool completely in an ice bath, stir.
Beat cream with an electric mixer until it just holds stiff peaks, then fold into peanut butter mixture with peanuts and 5 slices of chopped bacon gently but thoroughly. Transfer filling to pie shell, smoothing top.
Cut remaining 3 bacon slices into 2-inch-long pieces and arrange in a decorative starburst shape in center of pie. Freeze pie, uncovered, until frozen hard, about 5 hours. Let pie soften slightly in refrigerator before serving, about 30 minutes.
