Mile-High Peanut Butter Pie

Mile-High Peanut Butter Pie


Now that I have your attention – go ahead and wipe the drool off your screen.  This pie is as good as it looks, if not better.  It is the kind of pie that calls to you from the fridge “Come eat me!”.  We heard it calling and happily obliged. 

This was the second recipe we made from the Pillsbury Bake-Off finalist.  I wanted to use my new pie plate, and I love chocolate and peanut butter, so it was a good choice.  This was easy to put together; it just requires patience for the cooling of the brownie and chilling of the topping.  The pie was even better the next day.  It is a very rich pie, so you only need a little piece (or lots of little pieces).    This would be great for a cook-out or party.  I promise it will be a hit.
