Peanut butter cream pie (with pretzel crust), a dream come true for peanut butter lovers.
A while back I was waiting for an appointment; I was thumbing through a magazine while I waited. I came across a recipe for a pretzel pie crust. Wow, pretzel pie crust, I had to give that a try. Actually, the one that I saw in the magazine wasn’t quite to my liking, so I decided to make my own version of the pretzel pie crust.
After I decided to make this pie crust the wheels started turning. I wasn’t quite sure what I should pair with my new discovery. While thinking about it I thought of the Take 5 candy bar, this is the candy bar that has peanut butter chocolate, pretzels, and caramel. Peanut butter and chocolate sound like the ideal pie filling for this pretzel crust.
A little bit of salty flavor along with the sweet taste of peanut butter and chocolate. I don’t know what it is but there is something about these two flavors that they really compliment each other.
To say the least this pie was a hit with my family! Except for Mike, he is not a lover of peanut butter. It didn’t take long and every crumb was gone. I hope you enjoy this as well.
Pretzel Crust (Dawn’s recipe)
Combine 1 1/4 cups fine crushed pretzels, 1/4 cup sugar, and 6 tablespoons butter, melted. Mix all ingredients together. Press into a 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 350-degree oven for about 6 to 9 minutes, or until the edges start turning a little brown. Cool.
