The recipe I have is a little different, mine calling for 4 egg yokes, but I added 1/4 cup peanut butter to the custard after it was cooked to give it more of a peanut butter taste. It was delicious! I also do not like meringue at all, so I used whipped cream (can use cool whip) to top the pie with and then sprinked the peanut butter/confectioners sugar on top. It was out of this world! If you are a peanut butter lover like I am, you will love this pie! Also, I made my pie with a home made graham cracker crust. This pie is addicting!

Update: MY FIL loved the first piece but said the second was too much. This makes a VERY rich pie. In addition to the pie crust, there is a layer of sugar and peanut butter, then a layer of vanilla pudding, then merginue, then more peanut butter and sugar on top. VERY GOOD but VERY RICH! Not sure I would make again unless someone requests. Probably best saved for a holiday pie. (: Thanks for the post! Original review: This is definitly a labor of love type of recipe! I had a sink full of bowls, pans, spoons, scrapers at the end! My 9 year old picked this recipe all by himself to make for his Pawpaw as a thank you. I was thinking more of a no-bake pie, but he ended up picking this one that used the oven twice. (: Will update on taste, it did make a beautiful pie! Will post a pic, too.

This is an excellent pie for peanut butter lovers but I'll agree with the other reviewers that it is very rich. I love that you make your own custard in this versus a store bought pudding. I am not a an of meringue so I also substituted it for homemade whip cream. By making the whip cream with less sugar it was a great balance to the sugar and salt of the remaining pie. We will make again!
