Sounds yummy. I'm seriously going to have to try this.

One of the first things I baked as a kid was peanut butter cake with peanut butter frosting for my dad. It was his favorite.

Sounds easy and good for a potluck. And I LOVE peanut butter.

Judi, what a nice memory.
DJ, glad I could help fill out the dinner menu.
Chris, oh, I like ideas for pot lucks.

BTW, I've not made this, so someone let me kmow how it is...though I don't see how it could be anything but delicious.

Can we say calories? LOL. It sounds delicious. I'll have to make it for my hubby, who has quite a sweet tooth.

I can't wait to try this recipe.

Francesca Hawley said...

This sound really great. Do you have any pictures of the finished pie? Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Anna Kathryn Lanier said...

Francesca, I've never made it. I came across it in my recipe file and it looked quick, easy and delicious, so I thought I'd share it.

I also can't make it anytime soon, as we have NO dairy products on any store shelves right now....and no frozen foods either. So, I can't buy the cream cheese or the cool whip until the stores are able to restock all the stuff they had to throw out due to power outages caused by Ike.

I went shopping today and it was fresh vegetables or fruit, no milk, dip, eggs, yogurt, cheese, Pillsbury biscuits or cookie dough, no meat, nothing in any of the freezers. That's a LOT of food to throw out and that was one store....
