My Grandmother's Peanut Butter Pie

(*I changed the title of this post because feedjit was showing a bunch of visitors from google searching for things I would rather not have my blog associated with. Maybe the title change will stop the perverts)
Today I have a craving for my grandmother's peanut butter pie. I am so glad I got her to sit down with me all those years ago and call her recipes off to me so I could write them down. Granny rarely wrote any of her recipes down, she always went by sight when it came to making anything. If I tried doing that, the dogs probably wouldn't even eat it and they will eat anything! She passed away in Nov. 1982 and I cherish my collection of her recipes. Here is my favorite. Be warned, if you make this, you will be asked to make it over and over again, AND it is very, and I do mean very rich.

Granny Whittaker's Peanut Butter Pie
Stir together:
2 cups peanut butter
1 8oz pkg softened cream cheese
1 cup sugar
3 tbls melted butter
Add to mixture:
1 cup Cool Whip
1 tbls vanilla

Mix together well and pour into graham cracker crust (you can use Oreo crusts as well) Chill at least 6-8 hours, but overnight works even better.

That sounds just yummy! I don't think it fits into my diet plan right now though - but I bet my hubby would love it!

Oh my! I absolutely love peanut butter pie, and put that "cream" in it, it just has to be even better. Thanks, Angie!

I guess we all have recipes handed down from our mothers and grandmothers. I know I do. My mom's white fruit cake was wonderful! I've tried to make it, but it just doesn't taste like hers. Oh well. At least I have the memories.
