There are times where having a peanut allergy really, really stinks.
This is one of those times.
I’m not particularly sure why, but I really got it into my head that I needed to make this recipe. Not wanted, needed. I kept hearing that this was a signature treat on the Disney Wonder and Magic Cruise ships, and the fact that it’s popped up in restaurants in the park sent people into a frenzy of excitement. Despite the fact I couldn’t really eat it, I really wanted to see what the fuss was about.
from everybody. Topped with whipped cream and another drizzle of chocolate, I was told it was a peanut butter lover’s dream.
What’s not to love about an easy recipe for pie that gets fanfare?
°o° 1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
°o° 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
To make the pie, blend peanut butter, sugar, and cream cheese until smooth using a stand or electric mixer. Add the butter to peanut butter mixture and stir until well incorporated. Gently fold in whipped cream, making sure no white streaks remain and the mixture is evenly folded, and pour into baked pie shell. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Glaze with chocolate ganache if desired.
To make ganache, heat cream to a very low boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and fold in chocolate until no white streaks remain. Cool until lukewarm and spread over pie. Return to refrigerator for at least another 2 hours before serving.
