  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. 2. Choose your crust - find something you can crush to make the crumbs for your crust. Good ideas are cereals (but not the kinds with marshmallows in them), graham crackers, and cookies (also simple versions are better, nothing "gooey"). Crush enough to make 1 1/2 cups of crumbs.
  3. 3. Melt the butter and mix into the crumbs. Press into a 9-inch pie pan. Put in the refrigerator to set.
  4. 4. Choose your middle layer. Any morsels, such as chocolate, peanut butter, or butterscotch chips, will do fine. If you don't have any on hand, chop up some chocolate candy bars. You will need one cup. Set aside.
  5. 5. Beat the sugar and egg yolks together. Add in the peanut butter, vanilla, and milk. Add in any liquid sweetener of your choice - honey, corn syrup, molasses, maple syrup, etc. Beat thoroughly.
  6. 6. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they are fluffy and form stiff white peaks. Gently fold into the peanut butter mixture.
  7. 7. Remove the crust from the refrigerator. Sprinkle the morsels/candy pieces over the crust. Gently pour the peanut butter filling on top.
  8. 8. Bake the pie for 30-35 minutes. Let cool completely.
  9. 9. Alternatively, you can put this same recipe into a small rectangular baking dish, or increase the quantities and put in a 13x9 pan and cut into bars or squares when cooled.
