If you like peanut butter this is your pie!
I have made this pie for both Father's Day & Easter and its everyone's favorite! Going to make again for Memorial Day. Its so easy & tasty. Don't have peanut butter on hand? Put peanuts into a food processor and let it run for approx. 4-6 mins. until you have creamy p. butter without the additives. No need to add a thing.
