Miller's Peanut Butter Pie!!!

Today after church Ashley and I had to run to Sarasota, and we decided that we wanted to eat at one of the Amazing Amish restaurants in our area. We were both in the mood for some "home cooking" but the main reason we wanted to go was for the Peanut Butter Pie!! I don't know how they do it, but the Amish make the most Amazing Peanut Butter Pies! Every Christmas Eve we have Miller's Peanut Butter Pie at Gran and Pop's. It is definitely one of my favorite desserts.
Unfortuntaley after driving to 3 different Amish restaurants and finding them all closed we figured out that the Amish do not work on Sundays.
We were both Super disappointed and both whined about how much we wanted Peanut Butter Pie the entire way home :(
When we got home we looked on the internet for a recipe and found one that sounded really close to Miller's recipe. So with Mom's help we set forth on the task of making a homemade Peanut Butter Pie.

And here is our finished product!! After 2 attempts at the Meringue we finally got it right. (In our defense the recipe called for cornstarch in the meringue. The Cornstarch totally made the meringue taste pasty so we threw it out and started again.)

The pie was SOOO GOOD!! Almost as good as Miller's just a little soupier. We were to impatient to wait for it to cool completely, so the custard was a little soupy.

All in all I think our first attempt at at PB Pie was successful. This is definitely a dessert that I will make again.

You probably should post the recipe.

Wow! I don't know if I'm more proud of you for attempting (and succeeding!) at making a peanut butter pie or if I'm more appalled that you drove to 3 restaurants looking for it!

Seriously??? Do you know how much gas costs??? ;)
