i agree with Patty C. a good peanut butter pie is awesome. I had one at Tom Douglas's "Ettas" in seattle and i couldn't believe how light it was. Its a little extra work, but a peanut butter chiffon pie is amazing and will serve a lot of people. Ettas even had thing layer of chocolate between the filling and the crust...so it was even more amazing. The only recipe I know of for a chiffon version of a peanut butter pie is the Williams-Sonoma "Pies & Tarts" one, which you can find here.


A treat a friend's mom used to make for us when I was growing up was rice crispy treats, but mixed together chunky peanut butter and chocolate and spread that over the top when they had cooled. Its not for the faint of heart...you have to really be committed to your love of peanut butter to eat them!

I hope this helps and you turn out some excellent desserts!

Tiger butter ! Although not a plated dessert, a great hit for both young and old.

Pardon the pictures (it was early in my blogging career and I was clueless) but this Peanut Butter Chocolate Cloud Pie from Tish Boyle/Lisa Yockelson is AWESOME and quite easy.
