To cap off our dinner tonight, I made one of our favorite desserts. After all, what better way to celebrate the joy of love than with a decadent treat?
Mrs. Salter’s Peanut Butter Pie (recipe from the Food Network, courtesy of Paula Deen)
• 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 8 ounces cream cheese
• 1 cup crunchy peanut butter (I substitute creamy peanut butter.)
• 1 cup confectioners' sugar
• 1 graham cracker crust, store-bought or premade ( I make my own using the recipe on the box of graham cracker crumbs. Experience tells me that it makes a difference.)
Whip cream with 1/4 cup sugar. Mix all other ingredients until smooth and fold in whipped cream until well blended. Pour mixture into a graham cracker crust and chill for several hours before serving.
I like to serve it with a little chocolate syrup drizzled over the top.
