I grew up enjoying this creamy custardy type Peanut Butter pie at a local restaurant. I would be so disappointed when they would sell out of it before I got my piece..lol!

The owners of the restaurant sold before I was ever able to get my hands on the recipe. So, I worked on a recipe till I got it right. it's as close to their version as I think I could ever get.

I had leftover pie dough from weekend pecan pies. So, asked the boy what pie he wanted. He requested this one. He loves it as much as I do.

Enjoy!
