Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat confectioners' sugar and peanut butter together in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread peanut butter mixture into prepared pie crust as evenly as possible.
  3. Whisk water, cornstarch, and 1 tablespoon white sugar together in a saucepan; bring to a boil for 15 seconds, stirring constantly. Remove saucepan from heat and cover with a lid.
  4. Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until soft peaks form. Lift the beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak.
  5. Beat cream of tartar and vanilla into egg whites. Gradually add 1/2 cup white sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Lift the beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks.
  6. Beat cornstarch mixture into egg white mixture on lowest speed, 1 tablespoon at a time. Increase speed to medium and beat egg whites for 10 seconds to form meringue. Spread meringue over peanut butter mixture to the edges of the pie crust.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until meringue peaks are golden, 10 to 15 minutes.

I really do not enjoy giving a recipe such a low rating, but unfortunately this one just does not work as written The first issue is that it calls for an UNBAKED pie crust. Next in the step where you mix the powdered sugar with the peanut butter it states it will be "smooth" and to "spread into crust." I did not get get a mixture that is smooth or spreadable. I had coarse crumbs. I didn't have any issues with the meringue, that turned out nicely. I placed the pie in my preheated oven and baked for 15 minutes. The meringue looked beautiful, nice golden peaks but the crust was RAW. I put the pie back in for an additional 10 minutes. The meringue got too dark, and the crust was still not great. I think this needs to be done in a PREBAKED crust or even a cookie crust. The peanut butter filling had a good flavor.

We have corrected this recipe so that it calls for a pre-baked pie crust. We apologize for the inconvenience.
