Real Southern Peanut Butter Pie

Recipe by  

"This peanut butter pie is the real deal. No pudding or freezing. Any true Southerner knows a real peanut butter pie when they taste it and this is it. This recipe was passed on to me by a chef at a famous inn here in Virginia that served up some of the best pies in the state."

Directions

  1. Stir confectioners' sugar and peanut butter together in a bowl until crumbly. Remove 2 tablespoons peanut butter mixture to a small bowl and reserve as a garnish. Spread remaining peanut butter mixture into the bottom of the pie crust.
  2. Whisk milk, white sugar, flour, egg yolks, and salt together in a saucepan over medium heat until mixture begins to bubble and thicken, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Pour milk mixture over peanut butter mixture and cool pie completely in refrigerator, at least 2 hours.
  3. Spread whipped topping over chilled pie and sprinkle reserved 2 tablespoons peanut butter mixture over the top.

I made this pie for international Pi Day and the end result was pretty good! I followed the recipe pretty closely, but had to make a few changes to the custard element of the recipe as it was not nearly thick enough. After the custard was complete, I realized it was too thin, so I added about 2 Tbsp of custard powder to 1/4 milk and added that to the hot custard and continued cooking until it was the desired consistency. Although the recipe doesn't state, I allowed my custard to cool to room temperature before pouring over the peanut butter mixture. From there, I followed the recipe exactly and the end result was delicious!
