Chocolate Peanut butter Pie.

 I  Love a  restaurant in Chicago and when I found a cookbook with the recipes from it I just had to get it. The Peanut Butter Pie was one of the first recipes I tried.  When I went back to the restaurant and had a piece of the pie I actually think my pie is better.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
Graham Cracker Crust...(or use pre made one or your favorite recipe.)
1 1/2 Cups graham cracker crumbs
3 Tb light brown sugar
5 Tb butter
Tor prepare crust.
Pre heat oven to 325 degrees F.
Combine cracker crumbs and sugar.  Add butter just until combined.  Transfer to a 10 inch deep dish pie plate.  Press mixture onto bottom and sides of pie plate. Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
1/2 Cup light brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract.
1/4 tsp salt
1 Cup creamy peanut butter
1 Cup heavy whipping cream
to prepare filling:
Beat cream cheese in bowl of electric mixer until fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Add the granulated and brown sugars, vanilla, and salt.  Beat until smooth, about 5 minutes. Scrape sides of bowl and beater, add peanut butter and continue to beat until incorporated, 1 to 2 minutes more.  Set aside.
In another bowl whip the cream to soft peaks stage and fold into the cream cheese mixture.

Pour into the prepared crust and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Ganache.
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips (semi sweet is alright as well)
1/2 Cup cream
To prepare topping.
While pie is chilling, make ganache.
Place chocolate in a small heat proof bowl.  In a small saucepan heat cream just to a boil..  Pour over chocolate.  Let rest for 3 to 4 minutes.  Stir until smooth.  Set aside to cool.
The Ganache should be warm enough to pour but not warm enough that it will melt the pie.

Pour Ganache over the top of the pie and tilt the pie to allow the chocolate to flow over the top.  Or use off set spatula to spread. 
Refrigerate until set.

Enjoy this.  it is a great pie.  By the way I have also made this with a regular pastry crust and it is very good that way as well.  (Heck I could eat it with out a crust just out of the bowl!!)

Nikki -  You are just a DOLL.   Thank you so much for this recipe.  My mouth is watering and sounds like everyone else's too.  Now when I visit Das Essenhous I can try another pie because I can make this one on my own!!  THANKS.

I think that sounds like a challenge for me to be able to make it.  While I love the end result, I like simpler recipes to cook at home.  Maybe one day, when I retire.  Meanwhile I will save the recipes. Smile

Crunchy might work but the nice thing about the filling is the nice smooth texture.  If you wanted more peanut butter flavor make the crust as a nut crust and use ground peanuts as a potion of the crumbs in the crust.  I think you could cut back on the butter then as well.

The more I think about it I think it would work.  I would use the regular chunky rather than the super chunky.
You could also add a layer of chopped peanuts in the bottom of the pie crust, melt a bit of chocolate with some butter add chopped peanuts and spread in the bottom of the pie crust after it comes out of the oven.  Let that set up and finish off the recipe.

Don't think it would do well in the envelope. 
You could do it using the little individual pie crusts.  Make a few and toss them into the freezer.  That way you could have some for later.

Oh, you do not want to come between me and my chocolate and peanut butter!!  Very dangerous thing to do.

This is really pretty easy. We can make it easier yet...
Use a pre made crust. 
Make the filling as written. 
Omit the topping if you don't want to do that. 
Just use a bit of whipped cream on the top or drizzle a bit of melted chocolate on top.  So now all you are making is the filling.

Thanks Nikki, I was also thinking of adding chopped peanuts to the filling, but lining the crust is a good idea.  My husbands says everything is better with chocolate and nuts!

If I remember correctly you are from the Chicago area correct?  If so the restaurant downtown that I like so much is Heaven on Seven.  111 N Wabash..across the street from the store formerly known as Marshall Field's  Restaurant is located on seventh floor of the Garland Building.  Order the Gumbo a cheddar jalapeno corn muffin and if you would like the Peanut Butter Pie.  But like I said I think the home made version is better.  The crust on the one from the restaurant is a bit thick.  There is another Heaven on Seven on Rush St I think as well as in Naperville.

Oh boy have to make this but will have to wait just a bit. But as one girl at our class does she gives her self Sundays as free days. So one small piece should be alright if I could stick to one small piece.
