I think I may disappoint you.
(If you can’t handle it, then you should stop reading now. But if you do, you’ll miss a hint about next Sunday’s pie. So, you should probably just keep reading.)
On Saturday, I spent the morning at a gift market fundraiser for my daughter’s preschool. I had baked four pies – two apple-blackberry and two chocolate chip pecan – for the bake sale, which had a wide assortment of delicious-looking home-baked treats. My kids each brought their own money so they could buy something. My daughter quickly decided on a plate of mint crème brownies, and my son, after what seemed like hours of deliberation, finally settled on one whoopee pie and a plate of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
While my kids were searching out the perfect treat to take home, I decided on my own bake sale purchase. Other than my pies, there were only two others on the table at the time, and I knew this was my chance to finally have a pie that I did not have to bake myself. And I knew right away which one it would be:
Peanut butter pie.
(That was not the part that may lead to your disappointment.)
I had neither made nor eaten a peanut butter pie until now, and I have no idea what I was waiting for. Wow! Talk about a rich, sweet pie. It was so good, and so worth it’s $6 price tag. I could pay near that for just one slice in most restaurants!
(Here’s where the disappointment comes in.)
With all the sugar that walked out of that bake sale, into my house, and directly into all of our veins, I knew there was no way I could make the pie I had originally planned to make this weekend and still live to tell you about it while in a sugar-induced coma. So, I didn’t.
I’m sorry. But I promise that you will not be anywhere close to disappointed with the festive pie I make for next Sunday. All I have to say about it is…peppermint…Oreos…hot fudge. You won’t want to miss it! (And I promise I will not be shopping any bake sales this week.)
Until then, I’ll share this picture with you of the pie my family enjoyed, thanks to the generous, anonymous person who brought it to the bake sale. And thanks to you for your patience!
Yours in pie,
I can’t share the recipe for this pie since I have no idea who made it. But I would love to get some recipes for Peanut Butter Pie. My taste buds detected chunky peanut butter and cream cheese in this pie, but whatever your recipe, please share!
