Two-Layer Silk Pie
This scrumptious recipe eases event preparations because it makes two pies that chill overnight. “My family loves the smooth texture of these silky pies,” Maryann Thomas confirms from Clay City, Kentucky. “The combination of chocolate and peanut butter satisfies even the strongest sweet-tooth craving.”
