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.

How to Make Bacon-Peanut Butter Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat 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.
  2. Heat 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.
