This is an excellent peanut butter pie recipe. My grandmother requested it many years ago from a restaurant that served it. Everyone who has had this pie loves it.

  1. Mix confectioners' sugar and peanut butter until mixture has a crumbly texture. Sprinkle half over the bottom of the shell.

  3. Beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar, and continue beating. Gradually add 6 tablespoons sugar, and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread over the top of the pie. Sprinkle with remaining peanut butter mixture.

Very tasty! I love peanut butter, but I don't like peanut butter pies that have the cream cheese fluff. This pie has lots of peanut butter flavor without being too rich. I couldn't get the egg whites with sugar to form stiff peaks - they were more like marshmallow fluff, but it baked up fine. I'll definitely use this recipe again. I may recommend putting it in a chocolate crumb crust. I referred my mom to the recipe and she let me know that you can make the custard easily in the microwave. Just stir it after a minute or two until it's thickened. So much easier!

I use whole eggs in the custard and do NOT top with the meringue. Everyone requests that I bring this to all pot-lucks!

I've made this recipe for years, but I only use 1/2 cup of confectioner's sugar on the bottom mixture. I use Cool Whip on the top, and sprinkle it with Peanut Butter/Confectioner's sugar mixture.
