I won my very first pie baking contest with this pie...1st place and best in show!!! I used Nutter Butter cookies for the crust because you can never have enough peanut butter as far as I'm concerned!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This cool creamy peanut butter pie is to die for! A bakery-quality pie, but better. The crust is thick, sweet, and made with Nutter Butters. On top is a cool, rich, and creamy layer. Drizzling the pie with peanut butter and fudge puts this over the top. A great spring or summertime dessert.
