The most delicious desert in the world but I haven't found it in Manhattan - yet. Anyone?

    If I'm not mistaken, Billy's Bakery has an excellent version.

        Thanks for the excellent suggestions. We tried Bubby's and Billy's. They have a similar peanut butter mousse but the crusts are different. We liked both.

        The version I'm looking for has a more dense peanut butter layer. Apparently, Veselka's used to have it but they have discontinued. I asked the manager about getting one for Thanksgiving and I have my fingers crossed. Further recommendations are welcome as this is an all-time fav and I'm a terrible baker.

          I saw that Peanut Butter and Co sells a chocolate peanut butter pie in individual servings. Looked dense, and the slices were pretty large. If nothing else, you could pick up some peanut butter while you're there. Good luck!

            Just as an update, the PB & Co pie was a big disappointment on taste. We tried one at Friend of a Farmer which was even worse. So far, Billy's is the local favorite, although I'm still looking for something a little denser and with more chocolate. I will persevere!

              I had a great one at Tribeca Grill awhile back. I'm not certain it is still on the menu, but it was much better than Bubby's version.
