Happy COLD Monday! I hope you are all staying warm. I’m trying to but it’s just so stinkin’ cold I can’t stand it!
This pie is to die for! I don’t know who Bessie is, but I do know she makes a mean peanut butter pie. This pie is absolutely fabulous. If you are a peanut butter lover like I am, then you must make this pie. It’s creamy, smooth and absolutely dee-lish!!! The chocolatey, crispy crust paired with the peanut butter filling is oh soooo good!
It was so funny to watch my boys eat this and hear their responses. Taylor took one bite and said “holy crap this is good, this is possibly the best pie I have ever eaten.” Parker exclaimed “this has got to go on your blog!” So there you have it, this pie was officially deemed BW (blog worthy) by my boys and my husband.
