Any sort of nostalgic flavor makes for a killer pie, which is what makes this Peanut Butter and Jelly Pie so good. 

To emulate the whole-wheat bread and graham crackers of my youth, I mix in some graham flour along with the usual all-purpose. The resulting crust is crisp and lightly nutty, and the perfect base for a creamy peanut butter custard, with a layer of glistening jelly on top. Tradesies encouraged.
