Peanut Butter Chess Pie

Peanut Butter Chess Pie

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time:
55 mins


4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 (5-ounce) can evaporated milk (about 2/3 cup)
2 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust


Heat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, stir together melted butter and peanut butter. Add evaporated milk and eggs, then stir to combine. Add cornstarch, sugar and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Pour mixture into the unbaked pie crust, being cautious not to over-fill. Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until a crust has formed completely across the top. It will look like a peanut butter cookie, and there might still be a little jiggle to the pie. Allow to cool completely before slicing. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
