Pie Orders

For Thanksgiving I let each person in my family make a pie order, here is the dessert menu:

Steve: Banana Cream
Kraig: Key lime
Reed: Key lime
Abby: Snickers
Ben: Peanut butter cup

Several people have asked me for the recipe to the Peanut butter cup pie...I finally created it, so here it is:

Peanut Butter Cup Pie

1 graham cracker crust (either homemade or store bought)

Chocolate layer
1 cup chocolate chips
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup hot heavy cream
chop chocolate in blender add egg and vanilla and blend together. While the blender is running, slowly pour hot cream into the mixture. Mix well, chill until thick enough to add to bottom layer of the pie, chill

Peanut butter layer
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 TBL sugar
whisk together 1/2 cup cream and peanut butter, set aside. Whip remaining cream with sugar and fold the two together. Add to the top of the chilled chocolate layer.

Chopped peanut butter cups (don't skip this step)

Enjoy! And happy pie eating.
