National Peanut Butter Day | Peanut Butter Pie – The Foodie Patootie

National Peanut Butter Day | Peanut Butter Pie

Is there really anything much better than a good ol’ PB&J sandwich? It’s a classic and for me, anything that highlights peanut butter really makes me nostalgic in a way. Well National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day is April 2nd so you’ll have to wait for that, but today is National Peanut Butter Day and I have a fabulous pie for you to enjoy.

This Peanut Butter Pie is courtesy of my mom, who makes it the best. It tastes like one big Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup- creamy and rich. It’s a decadent dessert you’ll love, just like our family does. We mostly enjoy this pie during those indulgent holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, but a random weekend is always fun too. 🙂

    OMG. Looks like your mom knows what’s up when it comes to peanut butter pies. Good lord. I know I’ve told you this, but this pie would be worth some puffy lips and itchy tongue/ears…lol 😉 Love the beautiful swirl on it too!

      She DOES! I promise the pie is worth any sort of allergic reaction. Usually 2 bites are enough for me since it’s so rich.
