Directions

  1. Mix confectioners' sugar and peanut butter until mixture has a crumbly texture. Sprinkle half over the bottom of the shell.
  2. In the top of a double boiler, combine milk, 2/3 cup sugar, salt, vanilla, cornstarch, and egg yolks. Cook over medium-low heat until thick. Pour filling into crust.
  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.
  4. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 30 minutes.

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 made this pie and thought I followed it exactly. I checked on it the last 5 minutes or so and it seemed the sugar had separated and was seeping out. Any insight on what I did wrong? I'm not sure if it was coming from the meringue or the custard.

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.

This recipe is the REAL deal, the best peanut butter pie I have ever made! I didn't change a thing in the recipe, it was perfect.

I've been making this recipe for years, and it's excellent. I also use this basic recipe, along with some homemade peanut butter cookies and whipped Cream, to make a killer trifle!

Directions are perfect, so the result is a delicious treat. Remember to cut small slices as this is intended to be a rich pie. This is a real peanut butter pie and the cooked custard is the proof! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

If you're looking for a cream pie that has a powerful p.b. flavor, try Peanut Butter Pie I. This one was a fine pie, though. The cream layer takes about 10 min to thicken on medium heat, another 10 to get the egg whites to the hard peak stage; the recipe is worth the time. The only change I made was to use an Oreo crust at the behest of my husband. :)
