Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut Butter Custard PieThis pie is a refreshing, cold one.  The filling is a basic custard with peanut butter and peanut butter chips melted into it.  My kids thought it tasted like candy.  I imagine it would be good with a chocolate crust.  We squirted it with chocolate syrup  as a garnish.Peanut Butter Custard PieYou make it in the microwave; easy as pie. (pun intended)  If you use a store bought crust, you can whip this baby up in about 15 minutes.  If you want a gluten free dessert, use a gf crust like Bob’s Red Mill’s pie crust mix.  The filling is gluten free by itself.

Oh, this looks wonderful! I'm trying to behave myself with sweets… I'll start tomorrow.
