This is my old Amish neighbors recipe, tweaked by me. When I think of peanut butter pie, I want to taste peanut butter. The only peanut butter in the original recipe was in the crumbles! My tweaking turned out scrumptious and just the right amount, not overpowering! I let her try mine and she asked, " why didn't I think of that?" It's dangerously delicious, the best you'll ever tease the tastebuds with! I make two everytime I make, as someone always wants to take a piece to devour later! Try it, you'll see what I mean! :) Enjoy!
