The peanut butter flavor comes through nicely in this pie, and it has a creamy consistency. My whole family loves it.

MY REVIEW

"This was a good pie, but it just wasn't as fabulous as I was expecting it to be. The crust might have gotten a little over-done at 10 minutes in my oven. I think I would have enjoyed it more if the peanut butter filling had a more "homemade" taste to it. Something just wasn't rich in that part. I would make the crust again to use with a different filling."

"Sounds yummy! I love Reese's candy anway it comes, pralines & carmel are my favorite, also! Sometime I'll follow original

recipe & sometimes dalamy's recipe. Not sure if my husband will eat this. Doesn't like his chocolate & peanut butter mixed but the girls at cards will love it!

"The Peanut Butter Praline Pie was FABULOUS - and CREAMY - every time I made it! I used a Nutter Butter crust (24 crushed Nutter Butters mixed with 5 Tablespoons melted butter) and a peanut butter graham cracker crust (1/4 cup melted peanut butter, 3 Tablespoons melted butter, 1-1/4 cups crushed graham crackers, 2 Tablespoons sugar). I topped the pie with a ganache sauce (8 ounces of chopped Hershey's Symphony bar with Almonds and Toffee Chips melted in 3/4 cream) - just beacuse I love the peanut butter and chocolate combination! Betcha couldn't guess that my favorite candy bar is the Reese's Peanut Butter Easter Egg!"
