Hopefully, this isn't against some kind of tos. I'd really like to see some other favorite recipes.
This is a southern favorite, but I'm sure you don't have to be a southerner to enjoy this rich, creamy pie.
I know Thanksgiving is tomorrow, but these are great recipes to keep all year long.
Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Pie
1 cup sugar
3 rounded tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoons salt
3 egg yolks (reserve whites for meringue)
2 cup whole milk
½ cup peanut butter
1 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 prebaked pie shell
3 egg whites
2 teaspoons sugar
pinch of cream of tartar
How to make it
In a large saucepan, combine sugar, flour, salt and egg yolks, adding a little milk and stirring constantly until you have a thick, smooth paste. Add the rest of the milk slowly, continuing to stir until all is blended. Stir in peanut butter, butter and vanilla and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly (nonstop stirring is critical to this recipe). When the mixture starts to thicken, lower the heat and cook slowly, continuing to stir until filling is the consistency of pudding. Pour filling into prebaked, cooled pie shell
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat egg whites with sugar and cream of tartar until very thick, stiff peaks form. Spread on top of pie and bake at 300 degrees until meringue is lightly browned. If you prefer, you may bake the pie without the meringue and top with whipped cream or refrigerated topping after it has cooled.
