 Peanutty Pie
"MOM IS KNOWN far and wide for her generosity and hospitality, and I think this pie has become her trademark! Through the years, she's probably made thousands of these pies for family and friends. The combination of peanut butter, cream cheese and chocolate in a delicious tender pie crust is a delightful finale to any meal."
