How to Make Peanut Butter Pie with Genache

Step-by-Step

  • 1Use a 9" GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST. ...TO
    MAKE THE GENACHE..... YOU NEED TO COMBINE THE SEMI SWEET AND BITTERSWEET CHOCOLATES TOGETHER IN A BOWL AND MICROWAVE FOR 50 SECONDS AT A TIME -STIRRING IT-PERIODICALLY... UNTIL CHOCOLATE IS MELTED THOROUGHLY.
  • 2IN A SAUCEPAN, HEAT THE HEAVY CREAM, AND COFEE GROUNDS UNITL BOILING ...REMOVE IT FROM THE HEAT...GRADUALLY STIR IT INTO MELTED CHOCOLATE MIXTURE UNTL THROUGHLY COMBINED AND IT LOOKS LIKE A CHOCOLATE SYRUP. ..POUR IT INTO THE PIE CRUST AND SET ASIDE... ALLOWING IT TO COOL FOR ATLEAST 1/2 HOUR... (YOU CAN REFRIGERATE IT IF YOU'D LIKE) ...MEANWHILE
  • 3IN ANOTHER SAUCEPAN, COMBINE MILK AND HALF & HALF, SUGAR, CREAM CHEESE, BUTTER, VANILLA AND SALT....BRING TO A BOIL. STIR OCCASSIONALLY.
  • 4IN ANOTHER MEDIUM SIZE BOWL, WHISK CORNSTARCH AND WATER TOGETHER -UNTIL SMOOTH THEN WHISK IN THE 4 EGG YOLKS.
  • 5Whisk egg/water mixture into boiling milk mixture and stir continuously until thickened......Remove from the heat and STIR in the peanut butter.
  • 6Allow the filling to rest until cooled. About 15 minutes
  • 7Once the filling is cooled...fold in the 2 oz. of the whipped topping ..atleast until the white of the topping is not apparent.
  • 8Pour into the pie pan and drip the left over tablespoons of genache on top of the pie and run a butter knife slightly thru the top to make a swirl like design....sprinkle with a few roasted peanuts atop (optional)
  • 9Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

    PLEASE NOTE: YOU WLL HAVE A LITTLE EXTRA GENACHE AND PIE FILLING-JUST FREEZE FOR SMALLER PIE OR TO FILL CUPCAKE TIN.
