I have made several recipes for peanut butter pie, and none have been as good as this one! My husband is not a fan of peanut butter, and while he was eating it, he said "I hope you will make this again". Of course I will. The only change that I made was add 1/3 c of peanut butter as I was adding the eggs and vanilla. This is delicious!!!!
