  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 10 tablespoons butter, melted
  • nonstick cooking spray

Instructions

FOR CRUST:
PREHEAT oven to 400º F.

COMBINE flour, 1/4 cup peanuts, granulated sugar and butter in medium bowl. Press dough evenly onto bottom and side of ungreased 9- to 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Spray 10-inch piece of aluminum foil with nonstick cooking spray. Gently press oiled side down on top of dough. Using a fork, poke holes through foil and crust to create air vents.

BAKE for 15 minutes; remove foil. Continue baking for an additional 5 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown and bottom of crust is baked. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

FOR FILLING:
HEAT cream in medium, heavy-duty saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally until it just comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in morsels and butter. Let stand for 3 minutes. Stir until mixture is smooth. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

COMBINE peanut butter and powdered sugar in small bowl.

TO ASSEMBLE:

SPOON peanut butter filling onto bottom of prepared crust and spread evenly. Pour ganache on top. Gently tap the pan on the counter to create a smooth surface. Sprinkle surface with remaining tablespoon of chopped peanuts. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm. Cut into slices and serve.
