Peanut butter pie

Hi you,

are you well? I hope so.

Me, I’m OK. I’m searching for a flat from Paris to live in and that is one hard job. Seriously. It’s a lot harder than I though and I did assume it to be hard. Bummer.

If I had some chocolate know what I’d do with it. Yea, the obvious guess is I’d eat it but nope, not this time.

If I had chocolate I would make peanut butter pie. Just writing that makes me drool. If you like love Reese’s peanut butter cups then this pie is for you.

I made it for New Years eve and cut it to little pieces. People said that it tasted like Snickers. Dont’ know. Maybe it did. I just though it was one of the best things I had ever baked and I almost wasn’t baking at all. (That makes me think that maybe it was candy after all, hmm. Nope. A pie sounds more healthy so let’s stick with that.)

The photos I took don’t really make justice for the pie. I had planned to take photos of the tiny pieces of the pie but I accidentally ate those pieces I had put aside the next morning. Oops.

I do suggest you make this pie to people who you need to be friends with (just make sure they’re not allergic to peanuts). The sweetness of this pie will make them love you.

Peanut Butter Pie (Adapted from here and here.)

Crust

About 300 g toffee flavored Domino cookies (similar to Oreos so you could use in example Peanut butter Oreos)

About 120 g butter

Filling

0,75 cups creamy peanut butter

6 tablespoons butter

0,7 cups powdered sugar

0,5 cups fine graham cracker crumbs

3 tablespoons cream

Ganache

250 g chocolate (I used milk)

1 dl cream

Maldon sea salt

First you make the pie crust. Break the Domino/ Oreo cookies into fine crumbs and mix with soft butter. Then press the dough into the pie pan. Put it to the fridge to wait.

The you make the peanut butter filling by mixing everything together. I you feel you need to add more than three tablespoons of cream or add more graham cracker crumbs then do it. It really ain’t that serious with this lovely pie.

Pour the smooth filling on top of the crust and again put it to fridge to wait.

Then you do the ganache. Put the cream and chocolate pieces into a kettle and very carefully let the chocolate melt while you constantly mix it with the cream. Remember, don’t let it get too hot just enough to make the chocolate melt.

Let the ganache cool for a little while before pouring it on top of the peanut butter filling.

Then sprinkle some sea salt flakes on top and put it to the fridge again to set. Wait for about 20 minutes and the pie is ready for eating.
