When I married my husband, he raved about his grandma's peanut butter pie. She brought it to almost every family gathering, and I quickly agreed with him! Grandma has not made it in a long time since she had a stroke, and the rest of the family doesn't make it (I think they are sad her tradition is no longer hers). I am so happy she shared it with me so that I can make it for my hubby!

How to Make Grandma Shipley's Peanut Butter Pie


  1. Combine peanut butter and sugar until crumbly. Reserve 1/4 cup. Sprinkle in pie crust. Mix custard mix with milk per package directions. Pour into crust. Chill to set. Beat cream until stiff. Cover the pie, sprinkle with reserved mix and peanuts.
  2. Grandma Shipley told me that the custard mix is harder to find, so she would make it with vanilla and add an egg into the mix. I have never liked raw egg, so I chose instead to make it with a little more peanut butter and a rich vanilla filling if I can't find the custard.
