"This creamy make-ahead dessert is perfect for company," remarks Julie Sterchi of Jackson, Missouri. Convenience foods—including instant pudding, frozen whipped topping, cookies and prepared crumb crust—make it a treat for the cook, too.
Here’s a true indulgence for the holiday season. The rich, buttery crust holds a triple-nut filling flavored with maple. When the tart has cooled, I drizzle on melted chocolate.—Rebekah Radewahn, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin
I've been submitted recipes for years to Taste of Home recipe contest, but never dreamed that I would win. I love peanut butter and add it to many of the desserts I make. This is one of my best and anyone who loves peanut butter cups will be in heaven when they take a bite of this rich, sensational tart. While it looks spectacular, it is very easy to put together.—Mary Ann Lee, Clifton Park, New York
My mother made this silky pie when I was a child. It was my father's favorite. The fluffy chocolate-almond filling is held in a thin chocolate shell. Be warned, it is so rich that you should only take a sliver.—Jamie Burkhart, Windsor, Missouri
